16 Plaza Sur Galapagos.jpg

South Plaza is one of the smallest yet richest islands in the archipelago, according to Galapagos Travels, known for its rich marine life. The abundant and friendly sea lions – the largest animals on the islands, with adult males weighing up to 550 pounds – is why snorkelers go there. Covering the seabed you’ll also find damselfish, triggerfish, hogfish, sea stars and urchins.
