Landing at Garner Bay

Laying around with the Sea Lions


Gardner Bay is a beautiful white sandy beach dotted with hundreds of playful sea lions and their pups. Espanola Island is bordered by steep volcanic cliffs. The fauna is extremely rich on this island, as evidenced by the colonies of seabirds, such as the Blue-Footed and Nazca boobies, as well as nesting sites for the endemic Albatross and Espanola Mockingbird.
