Today's excursion will take you to Las Bachas in the early morning. This is named after the abandoned barges that the American Navy left here in the 1940s. The beaches of Las Bachas, on Santa Cruz Island's north shore, are home to the Pacific green turtle nesting area. Marine iguanas can also be seen. Because it is made from decomposed coral, the sand is especially soft and white.These rocks are great for snorkelling, and provide the ideal habitat for Sally Lightfoot crabs (which are abundant on the island). The beach has a saltwater lagoon that is home to whimbrel and flamingos. Keep an eye out for great blue herons. This is your last excursion before returning to Baltra airport for your return flight to Quito.
