Espinosa Point is the most commonly visited site on Fernandina Island. It lies north of the island’s La Cumbre Volcano, one of the most active volcanoes in the Galapagos Islands.
A trail leads from the rocky shore past sandy beach areas to vast lava flows. A short distance from the shore, you come across a whale skeleton. Further inland, you can admire lava cacti.
Fernandina Island is home to the world’s largest marine iguana colony. The black marine iguanas at Punta Espinosa blend in perfectly with their environment.
Close to the sea, you can also observe sea lions, flightless cormorants and maybe penguins.
