Santa Fe

One of the central islands, Santa Fe has just one visitor site in a sheltered bay which is a good location for snorkelling and swimming. The beach is patrolled by male sea-lions which can make for an interesting landing, and vigilance is required when snorkelling. There are two trails, the most commonly used passing through giant prickly pear cactus which are endemic to Santa Fe. The land iguanas here are a much lighter colour than those found elsewhere in the Galapagos Islands and are unique to Santa Fe.
