A 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.
Among the many sights of this island is Punta
Suarez, a rocky point of land where various colonies of
and other fauna can be observed.
Many of the birds here are indigenous to
the area, and can only be seen in the Galapagos Islands. The
Bay is a beautiful beach on the island, offering an excellent
opportunity to relax and swim.
