Capello Chino (literal translation) is a small island located southeast of the island of Santiago, whose surface is less than a quarter of a kilometer. It is a recently formed volcanic cone, hence its descriptive name: it is shaped like a Chinese hat from front to back. The shape of the hat is best seen from the north side. In front of the Chinese hat, on the rocky coast near Santiago, Galapagos penguins can often be spotted.
A short 400 m trail circles the bay and passes a colony of sea lions and marine iguanas that cover the landscape. The volcanic landscape is attractive and there are excellent images of the cone. You can snorkel and swim in this wonderful Island's bay.
