I am amused to discover there exists a place with the official name Inaccessible Island.

Also by the fact that on this island there is a "Pig Beach" and then another area marked "Where the Pig Fell Off".

Edit: What the pig fell off appears to be unrecorded on the internet as googling "Where the pig fell off" just turns up the map in the link above, plus a handful of blog entries very similar to this one. It does reveal, though, that on the neighbouring island of Tristan da Cunha, there is a hill known as The Hill-with-a-cone-in-it-on-the-east-side-of-the-gulch-come-down-by-the-Ridge-where-the-goat-jump-off.
