Rabida Island is a small island south of Santiago Island in the center of the Galapagos archipelago. It is famous for its red-sand beach.
There is a small lagoon close to the landing beach where you can observe different coastal birds and maybe even flamingos. A trail leads from the beach to a higher part from where you can enjoy a delightful view. The contrasts between the turquoise water, the red-sand beach, and the green cacti onshore form a beautiful backdrop.
During the hike through the arid vegetation, you can observe plenty of smaller land birds like finches and mockingbirds.


Highlights: Red-sand beach, coastal and land birds (maybe flamingos)
Permitted activities: Hiking, snorkeling, swimming, kayaking
Tip: Try to make as little noise as possible to avoid scaring away the birds.

Activities and visits may vary according to the cruise.
