Cerro Brujo Beach

brujo

Cerro Brujo, or Witch’s Hill, is located on the northern coast of the San Cristobal Island, the trail to visit this place will take you about 3 hours, accessible only by tour boat. 

The main attraction is the coral sand beach as well as a variety of flora and fauna species. It is an eroded tuff cone, which in some of its parts, is composed of lava. The citizens of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno used to extract salt to preserve cod fish, meat from their farms, and tortoise meat.

This is a place to observe marine birds. Cerro Brujo offers an excellent landscape from which you may see León Dormido, the south of the highest part of San Cristobal, and the adjacent coast. Two halophyte species (Salicornia fructirosa y Scaevola plumieri) grow here in soils rich in salt.

To access this site you must arrange for guided excursions with local tour operators.

Activities:

Hiking, snorkeling, swimming, photography and filming.
