Marchena (Bindloe): Named after Fray Antonio Marchena. Has an area of 130 km² and a maximum altitude of 343 meters.At 130 sq. km., this is the seventh-largest island in the Galapagos archipelago and the largest to have no official visitor sites. There are some good scuba-diving sites, however, so you may get to see the Island up close if you are on a dive trip.
The 343 m-high volcano in the middle of the island was very active during 1991 – ask your guide about its current degree of activity. In the past it was possible to see the eruptions from boats cruising in the northern part of the islands.
