South Plazas Island
South Plazas Island is located on the east side of Santa Cruz Island. Plazas has an incredible landscape, and on your arrival, you will have a dry landing while sea lions welcome you at the shore.
You will begin your walk along a path through an Opuntia Cactus forest. Don’t be distracted by the landscape beauty because you must watch out for your steps! There are many land iguanas, the smallest species in the archipelago.
Continuing your tour, you will reach the fantastic, windy cliff. Here you can see the red-billed tropical birds, swallow-tailed gulls, brown pelicans, and the impressive frigate bird usually flying around. The trail meanders along the edge of the ridge for a few hundred meters.
While you continue the walk, you will find the well-known “single sea lion colony”: a heterogeneous collection of male sea lions, mostly elderly, who have lost their territories. Yet, surprisingly, they climb up the cliff via some rocky steps.
