After your daily tasks are complete, or during your free time, there are lots of sights to see and things to do on and around the island.
If you are an avid birdwatcher, then visiting this island is a must to see the Chatham Mockingbird – an endemic species, similar to the Galapagos Mockingbird.
Playa Cabo de Horno has some fantastic opportunities for expert surfers to take on world-class breaks, as the surf here is truly outstanding.
Head out to Puerto Grande which is a lovely protected cove on the north-western coast of the island or visit Punta Pitt in the north-eastern side. Ideal for swimming and snorkelling, Puerto Grande is a sandy beach where you can spot a number of seabirds. While Punta Pitt, known for its unique geological features, is one of the few places where one can see all three species of Galapagos boobies nesting. In the northernmost corner of the island is Los Galapagos, where you can see the Galapagos Tortoises living in the wild.
If you don't mind a bit of travelling, then head off the island to places like Isla Lobos and Loen Dormido or Kicker Rock. An hour's journey away, Isla Lobos has the main Booby and Sea Lion colonies of Isla San Cristobal. Here, you can also spot Lava Lizards along a 300m-long trail. Kicker Rock is a fantastic place to visit – shaped like a sleeping lion, this rock sits in the middle of the sea and is a great place to snorkel and scuba dive.
