Also known as Bindloe, Marchena is a large (130 km2) active shield volcano located due west of Genovesa. Although it is the seventh-largest island, it has a fairly desolate terrain and absolutely no visitor sites. There are some good scuba sites nearby, so you may get to see the island up close if you are on a dive tour.

Marchena played a bit part in the sordid history known as "the Galapagos Affair," for it was here that Rudolf Lorenz, suspect in the disappearance of the "Baroness" and her lover, met his end along with Norwegian fisherman Trygve Nuggerud. Apparently they washed up on Marchena and died of dehydration.
