Rabida (Jervis) Island

A small island (5 sqkm2) covered by dry and coastal vegetation that has a central volcano of 367 m2. Rabida contains the largest variety of lava types, red being the dominant color. Located off James Island. Rabida has the most diversified volcanic rocks of all the islands and is considered the geographic center of Galapagos. This dark red-colored beach is volcanic in origin. The trail leads to a salt-water lagoon, where we may find the great flamingo feeding. The mangrove at the far side of the lagoon is a nesting area for the brown pelican. After the walk, there is an excellent opportunity to snorkel.
