Espanola Island

Nov 06, 2017 - National Geographic Islander


Today in the morning we had the great opportunity to explore Gardner beach and the surrounding islet. One of the best attractions on this white sand coral beach is a sea lion colony where we were able to see females, a new born, and an active alpha male. Later in the afternoon we went for a long walk exploring the amazing Punta Suarez where there were many special seabirds such as albatrosses, swallow-tailed Gulls, Nazca boobies, and more. It was an amazing first full day on the enchanted islands!
