Santiago Island

Santiago Island is one of the places most frequently visited by volcanologists with its many different craters created by inverted lava flows incorporating a great variety of the island´s species: iguanas, seals, flamingos, red crabs and fur seals.

One impressive sight is the beach surrounded by lava cones in James Bay where the black sand contrasts with the green seaweed which serves as food for the species. There´s also a salt mine and Sullivan Bay is one of the places to appreciate the most recent eruptions, over the last hundred years, and also the place where its possible to walk over lava flows still with vents for the gases to escape from the volcano.

Don't leave the Galapagos without traveling to Santiago Island !
