Urbina Bay - Isabela

Galapagos Islands


Overview

Located on Isabela Island, on the southeast base of the Alcedo volcano, Urbina Bay is a visitor site famous for its landscape and genealogy. It was formed through an uprising of a 6km coral reef, and the terrain is diverse: coral, sand and lava formations, pumice rock and even rhyolite. You can hike on one of the two trails here, and on the longer one, you can see uplifted coral heads. Among the highlights of this site are the Galapagos iguanas and the Galapagos giant tortoises that are often spotted here.
