Darwin Bay is located inside the partly submerged crater of Genovesa Island, the Galapagos bird paradise. Although it is a small visitor site, it is home to abundant wildlife. Along the small white-sand beach, you can observe red-footed boobies, Nazca boobies, frigate birds and swallow-tailed gulls. There is also a small colony of sea lions and Galapagos’ smallest marine iguanas.
A trail leads from the beach to a higher part where palo santo trees grow and from where you have a nice view.
From the beach, you can go snorkeling and swimming.


Highlights: Red-footed and Nazca boobies, frigate birds, swallow-tailed gulls, smallest marine iguanas, sea lions
Permitted activities: Hiking, snorkeling from the beach, swimming
