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.

We visited Puerto Chino on a taxi tour from El Junco, to the Galapaguera, ending at the beach. When we arrived we were the only ones there. It was so beautiful. While not good for snorkeling, there is plenty more to see and do. A lookout point provides an awesome photo-op along with the chance to see a blue-footed booby... More

Picturesque beach with a short walk down from the parking area. Several birds and sea lions. BBQ area available also. Great for amateur surfers. Went in the morning and left mid afternoon since the tide was in and not much beach remained.

This was the last stop of a half day highlands tour. Bring plenty of water and snacks. It was a nice beach that was fun to body surf and watch birds. If you take this package tour make sure in includes the GIANT TREEHOUSE stop on your way up. It is so spectacular and sad that it's not advertised well.... More

We combined a trip to Puerto chino beach, junco lake and the tortoise reserve in one afternoon. We arranged this with a taxi driver who took us for the whole tour for $75 for 2 people. We spoke little Spanish and he spoke little English but we got along fine and had a great afternoon. If you learn a little... More

This was the last stop of our Highland Tour. Very nice snorkeling from a sandy beach. From a short easy climb up a cliff you can see plenty of Blue-footed Boobies.
