It is said that Rabida has the most diversified volcanic rocks of the Galapagos Islands. A visit begins with a wet landing on the deep maroon colored northern beach where marine iguanas and sea lions are often seen resting in the shade of the caves nearby.

Continuing up the rocky red cliffs a short 15-20 minute walk leads to a cliff overhang with a fantastic view of the cove with the ocean, lagoon and scarlet cliffs. Returning back to the beach Rabida offers some very good snorkeling opportunities sharks and manta rays are commonly seen.
