After initially feeling a little underwhelmed by lack of bird and wildlife, I really enjoyed our walk across the lava field, revealing interesting formations and fissures. The bay also has incredible water colour and worth a visit.

My wife and I landed at Sullivan a Bay by Zodiac boat from our cruise ship. It is a tricky, but dry landing. There is a marked (white stakes) circular walk from the landing, virtually exclusively across 1890s lava (there have been no eruptions here...More

The walk on this lava field was quite interesting, I am glad we experienced it. We arrived via panga and stepped directly on to the lava at the shores's edge. Since the lava is quite sharp, it is recommended to wear sturdy, thick soled shoes...More

Walk here early in the morning or late afternoon. Midday the sun bakes the black rock and it can be very hot. The walking is easy over unusual lava formations. Lots of different shapes of tubes, swirls etc. Worth seeing the expanse of lava for...More

The lava fields look like they could have been yesterday! Easy to walk with sturdy shoes. This is a "wet landing" on a sandy beach. Saw 3 large turtle tracks going to their egg laying spots. Also wonderful snorkeling.

Easy walk on lava from a volcano that didn't erupt that long ago (sorry, forgot when). The lava was beautiful as it was braided. Wear sturdy shoes

Know that all over the Galapagos Islands, you must have a guide. That is a good thing, as it not only protects the environment, but it gives you a great deal of information about what you are seeing. This sight is located at the southeastern...More

Walking on the vast lava field was both unique and interesting. It's overwhelming how life gets started in such a hostile environment.
