This small volcanic islet is uniquely shaped like a Chinese hat, having been formed by hardened lava and spatter cones. Don't be fooled by its small size—it’s one of the best locations in the Galapagos to take some stunning photos. Several species of Charles Darwin's finches are found on the island, along with colorful Sally Lightfoot crabs and sea lions.
