Isla Del Sol, Bolivia | Stock Image Gallery 1

Lake Titicaca shoreline on Isla Del Sol

Isla del Sol, or Island of the Sun, is an island in the southern reaches of Lake Titicaca, South America’s largest lake. The Inca believed that the sun was created here.

Home to about 800 families who subsist primarily from farming, fishing and tourism revenue, the rocky and hilly island has no motor vehicles or paved roads. Part of present-day Bolivia, the island is a popular day or overnight destination from nearby Copacabana, Bolivia.

    I loved Lake Titicaca but you’re photos are amazing and really bring it to life, as well as bring back some great memories. We also found one of the best Italian restaurants i have ever been too!

  2. Tracie Howe says

    Beautiful work! This post definitely makes me want to visit!

  3. Jon @ jonistravelling.com says

    This place looks amazing – almost looks like some of the lakes we have in the South Island of New Zealand (maybe it’s the sheep!)

  4. Bianca @itsallbee says

    I have heard about the lake for such a long time and wanting to visit this part of the world. These are beautiful shots I will have to visit soon rather than later.

    I’ve heard about this lake a lot. Your pictures are so gorgeous – definitely can’t wait to make it to South America 🙂

      Thanks, Ashley – It is one of my favorite spots on the planet.

    So far, I have only been to the Peruvian side of Lake Titicaca, but on my next visa run, I might pop over to the Bolivian side. It looks stunning!

    1. Bob R says

      If you’re in the general vicinity, you really shouldn’t skip a visit here.

  7. Christa Thompson says

    For the record, these photos are STUNNING! You just inspired me to add this spot to my “Mermaid Beaches” section. Seriously, where’s the mermaids? LOL.

    1. Bob R says

      Thanks Crista – unfortunately didn’t cross paths with any mermaids, which is probably a good thing. This lake is VERY cold. But I did get a blessing from a shaman. 🙂

  8. SJ @ Chasing the Donkey says

    WOW, what a place Bob. You sure do get to some amazing parts of the globe.

  9. Lisa says

    Bob, your pictures are amazing. The color of the water is breathtaking and I can feel the energy of this place just by looking at your photos. I’m going to enjoy following your travels.

    we didn’t have time to visit this island when we were in lake titicaca, such a shame but you can’t do everything right?

    great pics and appreciate the views of what we couldn’t see from before 🙂
