Took 0.80 boat ride to second pier where Finch Bay hotel is because mom couldn’t walk and visited German beach. Then got picked up by Tortuga Bay boat and went there. Walked all of the bay and then walked back to town via cobblestone path...More
This was a beautiful hike with rewarding views. Both beaches are stoning. Plan on staying a few hours enjoying the calm waters of Playa Tranquila. If you are tired of have other plans, you can take a water taxi to downtown. There are no food...More
A beautiful but LONG path (2.5 km) must be traversed to get to this beach. I didn't see any services once we got there. We carried in our boards and towels. Baby sharks swam just 10 feet out but didn't seem to mind our thrashing...More
Tortuga bay is stunning. The beach runs for a very, very long way and has beautiful baby powder white sand.
The walk to the beach is about 2-3 km from town on a paved path. There are a few hills to climb but it’s pretty...More
I spent time here twice. Once in the morning, that time it was really crowded when I came to the beach. I walked the entire beach and spent most of my time hanging out at the lagoon which was safer for swimming. The wildlife was...More
White sand, beautiful water, loved the walk to get there (i was able to do it in less than 45 mins)... the day I went it was not safe to swim, however at the end of the beach, (another km or so, worth the walk)...More
Tortuga bay is certainly a great beach, don't get me wrong, but I think as far as Galapagos go there is better and certainly a lot less crowded. I don't particularly enjoy being surronded by loud crowds of kids and that's what I found in...More
First, the trek out to the beach. There's a nice brick path to the beach (pretty sure it's more than a mile). The path alone takes you through interesting forest/cacti where you can spot tortoises and a variety of birds. Then you get to the...More
You have to walk past the first section of the beach in order to get to the swimming beach. The first section is a stretch of almost unaltered sand beach (no trash and not a lot of people to step over) where you can just...More

hello, no need of a boat. We took a taxi to the beginning of the park, where the ticket office is and walked about 30`along a nice road to arrive at the beach. Once there, you walk along it till you reach a peninsula where you cross and arrive at other beach. If you want to walk more, you can follow, from Puerto Ayora, the Charles Bindorf street that ends at the ticket`s office. If you take a look at the map at this post, you will see the road. Enjoy!

Sorry for the delay in answering - I think you see more by boat, however we also stayed on land and had some time in Santa Cruz so believe you need to do both things to see as much as possible and to also have some relax time as the boat was busy and on the go a fair bit of the time.
