PUNTA PITT

Punta Pitt is located in the northeast corner of the island of San Cristóbal. The trail includes an Olympic beach of approximately 90 meters / 295 feet and a shipment that ascends to the top of a volcanic tuff hill that crosses several natural viewpoints.

The walking path is 1,400 meters / almost a mile, with an estimated time of two hours round trip. Punta Pitt is composed of volcanic tuff substrate. The strong winds present themselves in a unique form of natural erosion.

This is the only site in the Galapagos Islands, where you can watch the three species of boobies and two species of frigates nesting in the same area. The reason that there are three species of boobies at Punta Pitt is due to the geographic location: there is enough food so there is no competition between them. The blue-footed boobies nest in the interior (rarely on the cliffs), red-footed boobies nest on bushes and masked boobies nest along the cliffs. Another added attraction is the presence of sea lions at the landing point, in the bay.
