The Falklands are very windswept, and have virtually no trees. The commonest vegetation being grasses and a small shrub with red berries known locally as "Diddle Dee". Attempts have been made to plant trees, but with little success.
The main Islands have coastlines that are very indented and provide many natural sheltered harbours, very similar to the Pacific coast of Patagonia.
