Genovesa

Enjoy Exploring this Spectacular Island of Birds

Genovesa is a horseshoe shaped island located in the north eastern part of the Galapagos. Its unique shape was formed through volcanic action, and its steep steep cliffs provide homes for seabird colonies.

There is an abundance of frigate bird, red-billed tropicbird, storm petrel, finch, and mockingbird, among others. On a shoreline walk you’ll spot marine iguana, which are the only reptile on the island.

It is worth visiting Prince Philip Steps, which are named after a visit by the British royals in 1964. The stairway leads to a narrow stretch of land and walking trail that opens onto the plateau surrounding Darwin Bay, which forms the north side of the island.
 
All around you will see a huge variety of sea life living in the crevices of the cliffs. To snorkel in the nutrient-rich water and see the shark, sea lion, turtle, and occasional manta ray, is a memorable experience.

Darwin Bay beach is a small sand and coral beach, where you can follow a trail along a tidal lagoon and up a rocky hill to a viewpoint overlooking the bay, to view the birdlife among the trees, cacti, and saltbushes.
