Enjoy guided walks in Floreana Island's Post Office Bay. After, snorkel at Corona del Diablo.
Post Office Bay
Learn about the unique history of Post Office Bay by visiting Post Office Bay. A barrel was placed here by English whaling vessels in the late 18th century to serve as a postal office. Tourists use the box primarily to drop off unstamped letters and carry them to distant destinations. You can continue the tradition by leaving a note and taking one to deliver. Make sure it reaches the right place!
Punta Cormorant is the only landing spot on Floreana Island. Here you will find two amazing beaches. One with green sand coloured by olivine, and one with white sand particles called 'Flour Beach. You can spend the afternoon watching flamingos, and other shorebirds, feeding in the lagoon. Seek out marine iguanas and penguins near the water's edge.
You can snorkel at the "Devil's Crown", an ancient underwater volcano cone located north of Punta Cormorant. You will find large schools of reef sharks, tropical fish, and sea turtles among the coral reef. You should be able to swim well, as the currents can get intense.
