Bartolome & Rábida Island

Sep 16, 2019 - National Geographic Islander


Bartolome and Rábida, both satellite islands of Santiago, are among the most beautiful and interesting sites of the Galapagos. Bartolome is the perfect place to study geology and see firsthand the colonization of flora and fauna in the Galapagos. Rábida Island is home to pink flamingos, a brackish lagoon, and a picturesque red sand beach. Today guests had the opportunity to explore both locations and enjoy some water activities such a snorkeling and kayaking.
