A Turquoise Gem!

This beach is quite lovely and good for swimming/sunbathing. The water was a beautiful Turquoise and waves very low. Not too many sea lions around which was nice.

This white sand beach has gentle waves and a gently sloping sandy bottom. It is perfect for swimming! Water clarity and lack of rocks make snorkeling not that great. It's a hot 15 minute walk out from where the taxi leaves you but that cool water feels great! There are sea lions and supposedly a colony of blue footed boobies... More

This little beach is best reached by taxi unless you are a cycler! A cute little beach with a wonderful trail cleared to get there. You will see all sorts of crazy vegetation along the way, birds tweeting in the brush and finally the ocean itself. A romantic spot for sunset! Need a tax call Christian he is a certified... More

Came down to this beach as part of a Highlands tour. The beach is beautiful and the kids had alot of fun riding the waves. The water was too churned up from waves to see anything snorkeling. Not a far walk along a path from the drop off point. If your looking for a pretty beach this is it but... More

Amazing white sand beach. I recommend you take a taxi with rented bikes to the site so you can return afterwards to the port by bike passing through the Junco Lagoon :)

We are celebrating our 50th anniversary and decided to take our whole family on a trip they would all remember. We went to the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador and had a fabulous time. We were on the National Geographic Endeavour and had the most wonderful Certified Galapagos Island National Park Guides. We saw many of the birds... More

It was a bit of a hike. We told the taxi we would be back in an hour not realizing we would have to walk at least 20 minutes round trip, so if you want more than 30 minutes there tell the taxi 1.5 to 2 hours. Anyhow, it was a lovely Beach but what made it worth it for... More
