This is the southernmost island of the Galápagos and, following a successful programme to remove all the feral species, is now the most pristine of the islands with many migrant, resident and endemic seabirds. Gardner Bay, on the northeastern coast, is a beautiful white-sand beach with excellent swimming and snorkelling. Punta Suárez, on the western tip of the island, has a trail through a rookery. As well as a wide range of seabirds (including blue-footed and masked boobies) there is a great selection of wildlife including sea lions and the largest and most colourful marine iguanas of the Galápagos plus the original home of the waved albatrosses.
