Amsterdam Island is a French island located in the central Indian Ocean, 1368 km north-northeast of the Kerguelen Islands and 2713 km southeast of Mauritius. Together with the island of Saint-Paul, 91 km further south, it forms the district of Saint-Paul and New Amsterdam, one of the five districts of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands. It is the least accessible station in the network: about 20 people live on the island of Amsterdam during the southern winter and 40 in the summer.
