Overview

Rabida also called Jervis Island, one of the Galapagos Islands, in the eastern Pacific Ocean, about 600 miles west of Ecuador. The island has an area of about 1 square mile and is spotted with numerous small volcanic craters. Originally named for the 18th-century British admiral John Jervis, Earl of St. Vincent, the island's formal Ecuadorian name is Isla Rabida. A wet landing onto a red sand beach populated with sea lions has saltbush behind, and is a saltwater lagoon surrounded by mangroves. The lagoon is home to sea lions and brown pelicans. Flamingos can occasionally be seen, although they seldom breed on the island.

Things to Do

There us an abundance of wild life to see and photograph in Rabida. From Flamingo to Blue-Footed Boobies so take advantage of the last place with pre historic appeal.
