Playa Brava attracts many locals and some tourists. Brava means rough in Spanish. Especially during the day this vast white beach is dotted with iguanas and teeming with ghost crabs and a large variety of birds. The curiosity and fearlessness of the animals is one of the many characteristics that make Galapagos truly special.
Below is one of the thirteen finch species found on Galapagos. The finches played an important role in the development of Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. Each specie has a unique adaptation depending on the type of food it eats.
Playa Brava also attracts many local surfers.
