Cormorant Point GalapagosCormorant’s Point hosts a large flamingo lagoon where also other birds such as common stilts and white-cheeked pintails can be seen. The beaches on this island are distinct: The “Green Beach” named so due to its green color, which comes from a high percentage of olivine crystals in the sand, and the “Four Sand Beach” composed of white coral.
Devil’s Crown is considered as one of the best snorkeling sites in the Galapagos, a volcanic crater has been eroded by the waves leaving the northern and southern sides poking out of the water.
