Darwin's Arch - Darwin

Galapagos Islands


Darwin's Arch, located 1km to the southeast of Darwin Island in the Pacific Ocean, is a spectacular natural rock arch rising 50ft above the ocean, caused by erosion. With a bridge-like appearance, it marks the end of a reef, being a mix of lava and coral, dropping to a sand bottom. The islet of Darwin's Arch is considered not only one of the best dive sites in Galapagos, but also in the world. It offers a diversity of marine fauna, from whale sharks and hammerhead sharks to dolphins, green turtles and manta rays.
