Galapagos Islands Floreana (Charles)
Pirates and whalers dropped anchor here. Visit Post Office Bay, where a barrel served as mailbox to send letters home and snorkel around Devil’s Crown, a part-submerged crater.
Floreana has an eventful human history involving pirates, whalers, convicts and colonists. You’ll almost certainly want to see Post Office Bay, where a barrel served as mailbox to send letters home, and snorkel around the Devil’s Crown, a part-submerged crater. There’s a golden beach, a nesting site for green turtles and a salt lagoon where you may spot and identify wading birds.
