Egas Port - Santiago

Galapagos Islands


Overview

Egas Port, locally known as Puerto Egas, is one of the most visited sites on Santiago Island. There as was a salt mine here, around the 1960s, and you can still see some crumbling buildings and a large area that is now used as a soccer field. The mine's owner was Hector Egas, hence the site's name. From the black-sand beach, where you can likely encounter sea lions, you can follow a trail that leads you near the salt mine and the lake that forms within it, where you can spot flamingos.
