Bartolome Island

Pinnacle Rock

It is a tiny island of just 1,2 sqkm2 and offers one of the most photographed sites in Galapagos - Pinnacle Rock, an eroded tuff cone. A 30 minutes climb to the summit of a once active volcano offers a panoramic view of Sullivan Bay. The view is educational as well as inspiring, featuring lava formations – spatter cones and lava tubes.

On this island there is an excellent opportunity to snorkel from the beach that lines the northern shore. Frequently, penguins are spotted in this area. Take a walk through mangroves to the southern beach. Here, you may find mating sea turtles and white tipped sharks close to shore.

Some of the species that we can find here are the Galapagos penguin, lava lizard, Galapagos grasshopper, sea turtle, Galapagos shark. Plants like tiquilia, chamaesyle plants, scalesia stewartii, brachycereus cactus, red mangrove, scutia pauiflora, maytenus octogana.
