Sullivan Bay's black lava field

One of the interesting aspects to any Galapagos tour is the chance to view the area’s volcanic history is such staggering, ready detail. Nowhere is this more the case than Sullivan Bay, where a 100-year old lava flow has produced a black carpet of intricate markings and patterns, where iguanas and the stunning Sally Lightfoot Crabs crawl. A walk across this lava field to the nearby white sand beach is a journey through a petrified, unique world.
