Noteworthy because it is an area that was elevated from sea level in 1950's during the eruption of the Alcedo volcano. A part of the shoreline was raised more than 4 meters, and now the visitor can walk on what was once the sea floor, and see the dried corals and remains of a variety of mollusks and other sea organisms that were stranded by sudden uplift. Urvina Bay is located on the western coast of Isabela at the foot of Alcedo Volcano. On the trail going inland it is possible to see colorful land iguanas and even Galapagos Tortoises. Along the coast there are huge marine iguanas, pelicans and flightless cormorants and at times even penguins.
