This beach is a true paradise! There are lots of unique birds, pristine water, big waves to have fun with, you'll remember this spot for the rest of your life! One very important advice, put sunscreen. And then, put some more, and if you've finished swimming, hurry and put even more sunscreen after, I paid the price of thinking I... More

Amazing place, an escape to paradise! Definitely worth visiting. Of course, with your best friends on Galapagos - the sun protection and insect repellent :) Also take some water with you, because there's nowhere to buy it around the beach.

Yes this beach is wonderfully clean, warm with white sand and turquoise water. There were plenty of lava/volcanic rocks but the beach is wide enough to find a sitting spot. The challenge I can find here is .... how to get here. It is so far out in the boonies and there are no public transportation. You either get here... More

Chino beach or Puerto Chino has soft white sands, interspersed with black volcanic rock amid vivid green rain forest! It is such a peaceful beautiful beach.

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.
