These islands came to be when volcanoes erupted out of the sea, a transformation that saw a number of species evolve independently on different islands. As such, each of the islands that makeup the Galapagos has a lot to offer its visitors.
A look at some of the things you must do if you ever visited the Islands:
· Visit the magnificent natural landmark at Puerto Egas, with its long, flat, black lava shoreline that gives rise to eroded forms such as inlets, caves and lava pools. While there, be sure to visit with and admire the beautiful marine iguanas as they lounge lazily under the sun. In addition, take a look at hunting herons as they seek to feast on sally light foot crabs.
· Bask under the beautiful sun or watch beautiful wildlife at the La Loberia Island. On this isolated stretch of the island, you will find sea lions taking pleasure in their home. You could also partake in a bit of surfing or swimming at particular places that are away from the rather territorial alpha male sea lions.
