Pinnacle Rock is situated on the beautiful Bartolome Island. The rock is one of the most famous landmarks in the Galapagos. At the base of the rock and along the volcanic ledges, visitors will find the only species of penguins living north of the equator, the Endemic Galapagos Penguin. Other animals like sea lions, tropical fish, sea stars and anemones can be found in the area. East of the Pinnacle Rock there is a sea nesting site, where sea turtles relaxing on the waterfront are a common sight.
