We had a wet landing here and then walked through some lava rocks to a beautiful expanse of white sand. Sea lions frolicking in the water and resting on the sands. Loads of birds, totally unafraid of humans. A beautiful spot with a lovely view including Kicker Rock. Saw the sun set over the rock - magical!

It was a very fun experience visiting this wonderful beach, take a private tour of diving and thoroughly enjoyed the scenery that keeps this beach, marine biodiversity is amazing! It was one of the best memories of our trip to the Galapagos Islands

Our group enjoyed a leisurely stroll, taking time to look at marine iguanas, plants, shells, mockingbirds, sea lions and the remote beauty of this special site. It is a naturalist's dream place with much to see and study.

A beautiful beach with white sand. There is a huge colony of sea lions present at Cerro Brujo. One final opportunity for us to get some photographs before we leave the Galápagos.

Gorgeous beach for a leisurely walk, highlighted by birds diving into the sea for their food. Great view of Kicker Rock.

Came here with the kicker rock tour. This beach was one I the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. We saw baby sharks and tiny colourful fish in the water. As well you can watch the boobies and pelicans dive for fish all day. The only people on the beach was our excursion group and one other

What a wonderful time we had at Cerro Brujo. The beach is soft white sand and it is like walking on a down pillow. To one side of the beach you can slip over and see the wonderful tide pools that are surrounded by green sand. Snorkeling is good and the views are oh la la.
