This island is the most northerly we visited and involved
a long ( 8 hour ) overnight sail from San Cristobal. It was certainly
worth the journey.
Darwin Bay, the first
landing site is actually the caldera of an extinct and partially
eroded volcano. It has a white coral beach fringed with Opuntia
cacti and mangroves. There was a wide variety of bird life including,
swallow tailed gulls, red footed boobies, great frigate birds
and even a yellow-crowned night heron.
