daCunha

In the 16th century, Portuguese explorer Tristao da Cunha caught sight of a group of volcanic islands in the south Atlantic Ocean. As we all know, old-timey explorer types loved to christen their discoveries after themselves, and Mr. da Cunha was no exception. Though briefly known as the “Islands of Refreshment” during the 19th century, today this almost unimaginably remote location is officially called Tristan daCunha. Population? Two hundred sixty-five.

It’s fitting that we’ve named our bold venture after a tiny, faraway archipelago that appeals only to the most curious of people. You won't find feeds, recommendations, or chatter: daCunha.global is an online experience that is all yours.

We're on a mission to share beautiful stories.

“Imaginative and well-written, with some intriguing endings.”

“One that stood out for me was The Blow, by Benjamin Weinberg. Utterly convincing in style and voice. In just a few words it brought the reader in at once, with its evocation of a distant time and place.”

Ann Victoria Roberts, bestselling author of Louisa Elliott
