Isabela Island (Caleta Tagus), Ecuador
Isabela Island is the largest of the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador. Tagus Cove (Caleta Tagus) is a protected cove sheltered by the shoulders of two volcanic craters. Visitors to the cove will sail through the Bolivar Channel and ride beneath the cove’s sheltered cliffs where blue-footed boobies, brown noddies and many other bird species inhabit the lava ledges.
Arriving in Tagus Cove, visitors can disembark and climb a wooden staircase to a trail which passes through the Palo Santo Forests and arrives at Darwin Lake, a perfectly round saltwater crater.
