Gardner Bay - Española

Galapagos Islands


Gardner Bay, located on the north coast of Española Island, is famous for its white-sand beach, one of the longest in the archipelago, for a total length of 1300m. Home to several colonies of Galapagos sea lions, it’s a perfect spot for simply relaxing on the beach and sunbathing, but also for swimming, snorkeling and kayaking. The marine fauna is diverse, you can observe white-tipped sharks, parrotfish, king angelfish and rays, and above water you can spot blue-footed boobies, hood mockingbirds, Sally light-foot crabs, lava lizards and marine iguanas.
