Sullivan Bay - Santiago

Galapagos Islands


Sullivan Bay, located on the southeastern part of Santiago Island, is a fascinating visitor site due to its terrain. The area features vast Pahoehoe lava flows (Pahoehoe means "easy to walk" in Polynesian), formed at the end of the 19th century, which can be found in very few places around the world. You can actually see paths formed by flowing lava, volcanic rock structures and even moulds of trees. The bay is also great for swimming and snorkeling, as there are two coral-red beaches here, where you can spot sea lions.
