A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the stark and forbidding Malpelo Island is located 235 miles (378 Kilometers) from the Pacific coast of Colombia in the Eastern Pacific Ocean. A small Colombian Navy garrison was established in 1986 and ten years later Malpelo was officially recognized as a Colombian Fauna and Flora Sanctuary, with a marine protected area of six miles around the island.
Widely recognized as one of the top diving sites in the world, due to the presence of steep walls and caves of outstanding natural beauty, these deep waters support giant populations of various species of sharks in an undisturbed environment where they maintain natural behavioural patterns.
