Galapagos Islands is well known for unique wildlife: gentle marine and land iguanas seen nowhere else, tortoises that mimic small cars for size, sea lions so unafraid and inquisitive they will tickle you with their long, sensitive whiskers, and birdlife that astounds in its colour and diversity. It is expected you'll fill up your memory cards with cute animal pics, but this ancient archipelago of volcanic islands erupting from the bowels of the earth offers other treasures: clear waters, raw knife-sharp cliffs, lava faced coastlines, white coral beaches, and colourful vegetation come together for picture-postcard scenes.

This land is just as unique and colourful as its weird wildlife.
Eek! What on earth is this monster?
A lava formation.
BTW, none of the photos have been enhanced. They have merely been cropped for effect.
