Silversea Luxury Cruises Nach PLAYA ESPUMILLA (Santiago)

PLAYA ESPUMILLA (Santiago)

Espumilla Beach is one of three visitor sites in James Bay, on Santiago’s northwestern shore. The sandy beach is well-liked by Pacific green turtles to lay their eggs, while marine iguanas prefer the rocks on either end of the beach. Although salt was extracted from a mine less than 5 kilometers further south, today the island is uninhabited and has been freed of introduced pigs, goats and donkeys. A seasonal lagoon immediately behind the beach is one of the sites where flamingos can often be seen. View more

White-cheeked Pintails, Yellow Warblers and Galapagos Hawks are just some of the species of land birds found here. A trail around the lagoon and through an incense tree forest and past mangroves shows how the flora and landscape would have been before the introduction of domesticated animals.
