Be prepared to share the beach with the local residents of the Galapagos, the beach-loving wildlife. From sea lions and sea turtles to eagle rays, the creatures on the islands are mostly happy to share their beautiful white sandy beaches with you, as long as you respect them. If you are a keen surfer then you can also surf on some of the beaches, such as Galapagos Beach, but make sure you check the beach’s regulations before you hire or buy a board. Be aware the ground under the water can be a little rocky (so bring water shoes) and the water can be cold!
The Santa Cruz Lava Tunnels were formed years ago when the outer parts of lava created a thick rock wall for the lava to continue flowing within. Over the years, the flow subsided, and what remained are some magnificent tunnels made of solidified lava. The underground channels are large enough for visitors to walk through and explore, and they vary in length and don’t always interconnect. There are many tours available for visitors who really want to learn about the tunnels’ history. It is probable that visitors exploring the lava tunnels will come across barn owls and other types of birds.
