It is a popular destination for tourists who come to explore the unique and diverse wildlife of the Galapagos Islands.

The beach is the perfect spot for visitors to relax and take in the stunning views of the ocean, while the lava field provides a unique landscape for exploration.

The bay is home to a variety of wildlife, including sea lions, blue-footed boobies, and marine iguanas. It is also a great spot for snorkeling and diving, as the waters are home to a variety of fish, sea turtles, and other marine life.

In terms of history, Sullivan Bay is the site of the first recorded landing by Charles Darwin in 1835. During his visit, Darwin observed the unique wildlife of the Galapagos Islands, which would later form the basis of his theory of evolution. Sullivan Bay is also the site of the first scientific research station in the Galapagos Islands, established in 1968 by the Charles Darwin Research Station.
