The was a beautiful experience. The environment is fun and lively. On our first night here there were three parties on the beach. We just walked over and partied with everyone no problems. Music blasting people dance, drinks being made on the beach using fresh fruits, what else could I ask for? My Spanish is minimal but that wasn't an... More

Puerto Chino is lovely, you walk 10 minutes on a path that leads to the beach. There were some surfers there but otherwise it was deserted. Our taxi driver told us where we could swim to avoid the undertow. We changed into our suits on the beach and had a nice refreshing dip. We arrived at Puerto chino beach From... More

Small, beautiful beach that you'll see on most "highland tours." Water is clear and calm, white sand is very inviting, walk in from parking lot is lovely, and promontory on right side of the strand affords a terrific view, including a pair of blue footed boobies.

First of all, and as every beach in Galapagos, keep insect repellent handy. This may be the most beautifull beach on the island. Ask the driver to stop at the restaurant with free bananas (just before galapaguera) so you will not starve at the beach, there you can also buy water, take some to the beack but please do not...

After you have seen all the amazing sights and walked all the beautiful trails, if you just want a gorgeous day of relaxation at a pristine, white sand beach, pay the cab fair, enjoy the drive through the highlands and soak up the sun on this stunning beach.

While I lived on the island I went and camped at Puerto Chino. It is such a beautiful beach, with a lot of rocks. I surfed there with a few friends and the water was so clean you could see turtles swimming in the distance. It does require a taxi or a friend with a car to get there but... More

It's absolutely beautiful but the whole time we where there tábanos were attacking us! so as they love salt my advice is to quickly grab your towel and get dry as fast as possible to avoid it

The distance from town requires an all day bike, or a taxi. The taxi we took cost $50US. The driver told us $70, but we advised him that we were told $50 by the hotel owner. "Ok, $50." He said without hesitation. That price included a half hour stop at El Junco, the dormant, fresh water lake filled volcano. This... More

A beautiful beach with good swimming. Lots of nesting blue boobies at the far right (as you look at the sea) Plenty of seals, iguanas etc. It is about a 10-15 minute walk from the car park along a well made stone path.

Gorgeous beach with emerald waters, but not clear enough to snorkel in because of the sand. Long taxi ride from town, long hot walk from the road to the beach.
