This small island with its steep cliffs was formed by rising lava and is now covered with opuntia cactus. Despite its small size, it is home to one of the largest sealion colonies in the archipelago, as well as colourful yellow and red land iguanas.

Birds to be found here included the red-billed tropicbird and swallow-tailed gull. The most characteristic plant is sesuvium, which during the rainy season is a greenish-yellowish hue, but in the dry season (from end of June until the end of January) turns a distinctive bright red.
