“…A sightseeing that will last for a lifetime…”. This how sunsets in the Galapagos Islands have been described.
When you think about it, the sunrise and sunset are two constants that unite all the people of the earth. Wherever you are (with a few polar exceptions), the sun comes up in the morning and sets in the evening. For the most part this happens without much fanfare or awe-inspiring imagery. But things in the Galapagos Islands are always a little different
For those of you who don’t know, this small volcanic island chain is found around 900 kilometres from the mainland of South America, off the coast of Ecuador. First discovered entirely by accident when a ship on its way to Peru was blown off course way back in 1535, the islands came to international attention when Charles Darwin used it as a basis for this theory of evolution.
Nowadays, Galapagos cruises are famous for providing visitors with access to some of the world’s most incredible wildlife and unspoiled natural habitats, including indigenous turtles, birds and marine iguana species. And, of course, its island nature means that there are some truly majestic sunrises and sunsets too.
Sitting on the wide beach on Isabela Island, you can watch the sun slowly set against a backdrop of palm trees and golden sands. It’s a must for anyone visiting on Galapagos cruise. Bartolome is one of the most photographed islands in the archipelago because of its lava formations and splatter cones, as well as the large colonies of sea lions found around Pinnacle Rock. Fernandina Island comes complete with its own incredible residents, in the form of the marine iguanas, native only to this small part of the planet.
However, although the sunsets look majestic from the islands themselves, they look even better when viewed from a large deck of a luxury yacht, the best recommended for a wonderful experience! By travelling by boat on Galapagos, you have the best itineraries to explore the best of the islands; sailing at night, after another dramatic sunset accompanied by cocktails with new friends, you’ll wake up to a new sunrise in another idyllic and magical location Galapagos.
