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.

Bring Deet or you will be miserable. Beyond the crabs we did not see much wildlife and the sand was quite sticky. There are many preferable beaches - I would skip this one.
