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!

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.
