Rabida Islands Galapagos

  • © Roberto Plaza

Rabida is a bird-watcher’s paradise. Finches, blue-footed boobies, doves, yellow warblers, pelicans, mockingbirds and flamingos all make their home on the island. Geologically striking, its reddish beaches, teal waters and steep volcanic cliffs are an instant draw for visitors.

Galapagos Island marine mammals are abundant on Rabida. The island’s beaches and surrounding waters are home to a colony of sea lions, and a vast array of tropical fish greet snorkelers along the rocks at the east end of the island.
