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.

Nature. Liked every thing. Galapagos at its best. T he place to visit if you are in San Cristobal. Nothing to dislike.

Very quiet and secluded beach. Wonderful views, saw blue footed boobies. Current a little strong but doable. One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen, even in pictures.

Pretty place, somewhat removed form the hustle and bustle (that's a good thing). Watch currents/surges/underwater rocks! Climb surrounding cliffs to get a better view into the water, and to find the elusive blue-footed booby!

I was very frustrated as I had not seen blue footed boobies and it was my last day in Galapagos. I really wanted to see them and thank God I came here! I climbed the rocks and there they were! I could take great pictures and they were sooo close! The beach is beautiful and you can see lots of... More

next to the beach are some rocks where you can climb up to have a nice view and where you can also see the blue footed boobies. You can also camp at the beach.

Puerto chino was my favorite beach I visited while in the Galapagos. There were many sea lions, multiple sea turtles, and even a sting ray. The water was clear and beautiful. I loved everything about it.
