Gardner Bay

Gardner Bay - Española Island

Sea lions bask lazily on Gardner Bay, a white-sand beach which is one of the longest in Galapagos. The charming Española mockingbird often hurries to greet visitors, and you can sometimes see Galapagos hawks flying overhead. The landscape is completed by marine iguanas and Sally Lightfoot crabs on the rocks at the end of the beach. This beach is a perfect spot for snorkeling, and its possible to swim to the small Tortuga Islet in front of the beach to discover the abundant marine life.
