Explore the Wonders of Española Island: Punta Suarez and Gardner Islet

Discover the Enchantment of Española Island

Española Island, with its 60 square kilometers (37 miles) of pristine landscapes, is one of the smallest and oldest islands in the Galapagos archipelago, dating back approximately 300 million years. Its uninhabited nature allows for an abundance of significant wildlife species, making it a must-visit destination for nature enthusiasts and adventure seekers alike.

Punta Suarez: A Wildlife and Natural Wonder

Located on the western edge of Española Island, Punta Suarez is a haven for wildlife lovers. The 2-kilometer (1.2 miles) trail here takes you through a vibrant ecosystem, home to unique species such as the Española mockingbird, lava lizards, and the colorful marine iguanas found only in this part of the world. As you traverse the trail, you’ll encounter the island’s famous blowholes, natural geysers where sea water is forced through volcanic rock, shooting up to 20 meters (65 feet) into the air. This spectacular display is a testament to the raw power of nature and provides fantastic photo opportunities.

Birdwatching Paradise

Punta Suarez is also a birdwatcher’s paradise. The island is one of the few places where you can see the waved albatross, a species that nests almost exclusively on Española. These magnificent birds, with their impressive wingspans and unique courtship dances, are a sight to behold. Additionally, you’ll find blue-footed boobies performing their charming mating rituals, as well as Nazca boobies, finches, and the majestic Galapagos hawk.

Gardner Islet: Snorkeling in a Marine Wonderland

Just 50 meters (164 feet) from the beautiful Gardner Beach lies Gardner Islet, a premier snorkeling destination in the Galapagos. Accessible only by a sailing cruise, this secluded spot offers an underwater world teeming with life. Snorkel in the crystal-clear waters and swim alongside playful sea lions, vibrant schools of fish, and graceful sea turtles. The rich marine biodiversity of Gardner Islet makes it an unforgettable snorkeling experience, perfect for both novice and experienced snorkelers.

Relax on Gardner Beach

Gardner Beach itself is one of the most stunning beaches in the Galapagos, with its powdery white sand and turquoise waters. After snorkeling, relax on the beach, soaking up the sun and the serene surroundings. The untouched beauty of Gardner Beach provides a perfect backdrop for relaxation and reflection.
