Darwin Island

Darwin Island is one of the smallest islands in Ecuador’s Galapagos Archipelago. It is named in honour of the English scientist Charles Darwin, who visited the archipelago in 1835 and developed his theory of evolution by examining Galapagos finches. It is the remains of an extinct volcano that reaches 165 metres above the sea level. Darwin’s Arch, located southwest of this island in the Pacific Ocean, collapsed recently due to natural erosion.
