It displays a fantastic landscape of lava formations. Pinnacle Rock, the worn away remnant of a cone composed of spewed ashy particles, is one of the best-known landmarks in the archipelago. Near the base of this tall, eroded pinnacle you can see multi-coloured fish and penguins. If you climb up to the summit of the island you can see the varied volcanic formations of Bartolome and the immense black lava flows on the nearby island of Santiago.

The resulting combination of moonlike landscape provides probably the most scenic panorama in the Galapagos Islands

The northern beach is a popular snorkeling site where visitors have the opportunity to swim with fish, sea lions and Galapagos penguins. Much larger animals can be found near the southern beach including stingrays, spotted eagle rays, white-tipped sharks, and black-tipped sharks.
