South Pacific Island of Isabela
Isabela Island is the largest island of the Galápagos with an area of 4,586 km2 and its highest point rises to 1,707m. Isabela Island is larger than every other island in the Galápagos combined. The island straddles the equator. The islands shaped was formed by the merger of six shield volcanoes; Alcedo, Cerro Azul, Darwin, Ecuador, Sierra Negra, and Wolf. All of these volcanoes except Ecuador are still active, making it one of the most volcanically active places on earth. Sierra Negra, one of the most active volcanoes in the world.
Isabela's rich bird, animal and marine life is beyond compare. Isabela is home to more wild tortoises than all the other islands. Today, tortoises roam free in the calderas of Alcedo, Wolf, Cerro Azul, Darwin and Sierra Negra.
Other noted species include penguins, cormorants, marine iguanas, boobies, pelicans, Sally Lightfoot crabs, Galápagos land iguanas, Darwin's finches, Galápagos hawks and Galápagos doves.
Isabela’s maybe not, main attraction but most apricated is the astonish white sandy beach that border the whole of Puerto Vilamil. Here you can easily swim in the ocean every morning tougher with penguins, Sea-turtles and maybe a curios sealion, a fantastic experience.
