Devil's Crown - Floreana

Galapagos Islands


The Devil's Crown, located off of Floreana Island, not far from the shore, is a ring of uneven rocks that stick out of the water. Its name comes from the fact that it looks almost like an uncomfortable crown, that only the devil could wear. Once a volcanic crater, most of it was eroded away and only a few rocks remain, making it one of the best snorkeling spots in Galapagos. The rocks attract a diversity of splendid reef fish, and you can occasionally spot hammerhead sharks, white-tipped reef sharks, manta rays or sea turtles.
