Albemarle Point, locally known as Punta Albemarle, is located in the northern part of Isabela Island. It is the highest point on the island and the ruins of a radar base from World War II can be found here. Accessible only by panga, it is one of the most pristine spots in Galapagos, and you have the opportunity to see endangered and unique species here, like the Galapagos Flightless Cormorant and some of the largest marine iguanas. You can also admire here Pahoehoe lava flows, the way lava naturally solidified in a wavy form.
