Gardner Bay is on the northeastern part of Española, and features a magnificent long, white sandy beach, where colonies of sea lions laze in the sun, sea turtles swim offshore, and birds boldly investigate. The beach considered an open area where you are free to explore and view land iguanas. Snorkeling at Gardner Bay is fantastic. This is often your first chance to swim with the Sea Lions and this is an opportunity not to be missed. Punta Suárez has a beach with Sea Lions and Marine Iguanas. A 2km trail winds through Masked and Blue-Footed Booby colonies to some cliffs with a blow-hole. Beyond here is the Galapagos' only Waved Albatross colony.
