Baltra Island is a small, flat island in the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador. It's located near the centre of the archipelago, and while it's not part of the Galapagos National Park itself, there are efforts underway to protect the environment. The island is arid and covered in vegetation like salt bushes, prickly pear cactus, and palo santo trees. Birdwatching is a popular activity here, with boobies and frigatebirds being commonly spotted. Because there are no visitor sites on Baltra itself, you might want to explore nearby islands like North Seymour, Mosquera, and Daphne Major. These islands offer opportunities to see the unique wildlife that the Galapagos are famous for.
