With its dramatic red sand beaches and rich green vegetation, Rabida Island is located to the south of Santiago Island in the remarkable Galapagos archipelago. The geology of Isla Rabida sets it apart from the other Galapagos Islands, as it consists primarily of spatter-cone volcanic lava and eroded hills in extraordinary shades of red and brown. The island is also known for its excellent swimming and snorkeling opportunities where you can witness a remarkable diversity of marine life including green turtles, seals, dolphins, manta rays, sharks and tropical fish. Visitors can explore a popular walking trail that leads to a saltwater lagoon where you'll find large flocks of flamingos and white cheeked pintail ducks. This trail then continues towards the summit of the island’s volcano which provides awe-inspiring views of this exquisite island full of astonishing natural wonders.
