Española Island

Española Island, Galapagos pelikanA lava fissure on the shore has created a blowhole where water spurts high in the air when the waves hit the wall.

It is the southernmost island of the archipelago hosting a large proportion of endemic fauna.

Espanola is basically uninhabitable for humans because there is no fresh water source.

Along the southern shore, high cliffs rise up from the sea, affording spectacular views of soaring birds and the famous blowhole, where water spouts up 50 to 75 feet into the air, according to the intensity of the surf.

Many of the birds here are indigenous to the area, and can only be seen in the Galapagos Islands. The Gardner Bay is a beautiful beach on the island, offering an excellent opportunity to relax and swim.
