The rough charm of imperfection: Two wonderful examples of inspiring photo sceneries on the Galapagos Islands

By Philip Smith

The Galapagos Islands are known for their attention about the ecological and social balance. Both the Ecuadorian government, as well as interest groups and the inhabitants of the Galapagos Islands, ensure a clean and tidy island. If you will have for the first time the opportunity to visit the Galapagos Islands, you will surely recognize the clean beaches, protected areas for endangered animal and many optimized waste disposal systems. All these movements should preserve the natural beauty and purification of the Galapagos Islands.


Not only because of this have the Galapagos Islands a very peculiar reputation in South America. A continent, where it is rare for state initiatives and cleaning measures to be carried out successfully on public beaches. Even as a visitor to the Galapagos Islands, one is made aware of the particularly fragile ecosystem. However, for the preservation of the beautiful beaches on the Galapagos Islands an active participation of the visitors of the islands is inevitable.


It is of course always a matter of taste how much one defines and appreciates perfection. Nevertheless, if you suspect a perfect, tidy and sterile atmosphere at every beach, you’re wrong: there are two extremely interesting exceptions that emphasize the blemish of beauty and are definitely worth a visit.

With a seemingly endless panoramic view to the horizon with many exotic animals, every visit to a beach of the Galapagos Islands will enchant and relax you at the same time. There are two beaches where you have the opportunity to see something out of the ordinary that is not part of the expected untouched environment, but yet still perfectly matches the atmospheric mood of the beaches.
