It all sounds very 'romantic' and generally light-hearted but the reality is not quite like that! There seems to be no mention of the word Antarctic which is a strange omission! Soon after their discovery, the archipelago was regularly visited by whalers and sealers (mostly British, American and Norwegian) who hunted the resident populations of whales and seals to the point of near extinction, including fur seals in the 18th century and elephant seals in the 19th century. . Since the end of the whaling and sealing era, most of the islands' species have been able to increase their population again.

Does not sound like an ideal place to me. These islands, appear from pictures and a very informative comment below, should be a sanctuary and breeding area for wildlife and scientific study. My personal view, keep settlers/potential settlers away and don't encourage adventure prone tourists. Some places on earth should be kept untouched as possible by humans.

The German auxiliary cruiser "Atlantis" stopped there in WWII for fresh water & ship maintenance. Sounded like a rather bleak place

Bit like Australian quarrantine. Only it takes longer to get to Australia. It seems Citizens are no longer welcome.

If the weather was warm wind wouldn’t be an issue but wind chill would be a factor!

The island of Saint Helena would be a better choice.
