Sombrero Chino Island receives its name from its peculiar shape that resembles a traditional Asian farmer’s hat. Chinese Hat Island is one of Santiago Island’s many satellite islands and lies to the southeast of it. Ashore, you can watch sea lions, marine iguanas and lava tunnels. During a snorkeling session in the crystal-clear water, you can observe reef sharks and other fish. A small colony of penguins lives in the area and if you are lucky you might sight some of its members.
