Ballestas Islands, Peru

The Ballestas Islands lie off the southern coast of Peru, near the city of Pisco. Rich in marine life, the uninhabited islands are home to sea lions, pelicans, Peruvian boobies and Humboldt penguins. Small boats run from Pisco and the nearby town of Paracas out to the islands' craggy rock formations. On the way, they pass the Paracas Candelabra geoglyph, an enormous hillside etching of mysterious origins.
