Galapagos Islands Santiago Island (James)
A favourite for pirates and whalers. There are outstanding opportunities for bird-spotting. Stroll around the rock pools or climb Sugar Loaf volcano for views from its summit.
The island, with two overlapping volcanoes, was a favourite for pirates and whalers. There are outstanding opportunities for wildlife viewing: bird-spotting is very rewarding here. Puerto Egas has Sally Lightfoot crabs to watch scampering along the shore-line and a trail across its harsh black hinterland. Stroll around the rock pools by the sea or climb Sugar Loaf volcano for views from its 395m summit. At Sullivan Bay there’s a ropy lava flow formed a mere 100 years ago.
