DAY 15 – Friday Galapagos Cruise Santa Cruz Island

Bachas Beach

Bachas Beach

AM: Bachas Beach
These two small beaches are found to the West of Turtle Cove.  Their sand is made of decomposed coral, which makes it white and soft, making it a favorite nesting site for sea turtles.  Behind one of the beaches there is a small brackish water lagoon, where occasionally is possible to observe flamingos and other coastal birds, such as black-necked stilts and whimbrels.  The other beach is longer, but it has two old barges that were abandoned during the Second World War, when the USA used Baltra Island as a strategically point to protect t he Panama Channel.
After the morning excursion you will be taken to the airport for your flight to the mainland.
