Sullivan Bay is situated on the beautiful island of Galapagos. The majestic volcanic site was named after Bartholomew James Sullivan who was the first lieutenant on HMS Beagle that brought the famous Charles Darwin to the Galapagos Islands. The landscape is made up of eroded scoria lava cones which were swallowed up by pahoehoe lava flow and is considered one of the finest in the world. The lava flow is over 170 years old. Pioneer plants are colonising on the dark rocks and lava making way for other plant species.
