About Us

Island life

Ascension is a small volcanic island situated in the South Atlantic with a stable, sub-tropical climate (25-34°C year round), excellent beaches and a unique biodiversity. 

The island is approximately 7 miles wide by 6 miles long, although it can seem bigger than this, as there are many things to do.  http://www.ascension-island.go...

Ascension Island experiences different micro-climates across different parts of the island.  Green Mountain National Park has a lush cloud forest environment, which is cooler and wetter than the rest of the island; Two Boats Village has a mixed climate with occasional rain (predominantly in winter, but not unheard of in during the summer months), whilst Georgetown is generally warm and dry with only occasional light rain in the winter.

We work hard, but there is always time for island life and time to enjoy the beaches, flora, fauna or the stunning sunsets.
