Punta Pitt

Punta Pitt is located northeast of San Cristobal. It is comprised of a hill that has a small beach full of minerals, one of them being olivine, responsible for the olive green colored sand. 

Later on, the tour continues down an inverted cone-shaped nature path of approximately 1 kilometer and a half (0.93 miles) where you can observe all the area’s fauna. 

Due to its geographical location, the area contains large amounts of minerals, making it a perfect feeding spot for hundreds of different pelagic species. The presence of these species in turn makes it an ideal feeding ground for the marine birds nearby, creating a balanced ecosystem. 

Pitt isle is located in front of Punta Pitt, a great destination for snorkeling or diving due to the presence of an immense variety of marine life.
