Galapagos Islands: Isabela (Albemarle)

The large, youthful island has five active volcanoes linked by twisted lava flows, bald of soil or vegetation. Its craggy cliffs and sandy speckled bays are ideal for exploration by boat and for coastal hikes. Puerto Villamil, its only village, has a tortoise breeding centre and a flamingo-filled lagoon. Tagus Cove is a natural harbour where pirates and whalers carved their ships’ names on the rocks, while the coral reef at Urbina Bay is a magnet for marine creatures. Punta Vicente Roca is the site of an ancient volcano and is one of the best marine sites to visit by boat or snorkelling.

What our experts say

I recommend a stay on Isabela. Among the island's attractions are the five active volcanoes, the most extensive wetlands of the archipelago, and a 3km beach. Here you can trek with giant tortoises, swim with white-tip sharks, snorkel with marine turtles and kayak among flamingos: all this in a quiet relaxed community where stress seems to be unknown.
