Many people rushed to get to the beach but I just enjoyed the peaceful environment, the lava lizards, the cacti and the birds. Yes the beach is very beautiful as well.

Beach is beautiful and worth to spend 1/2 day; following recommendations of our hotel hostess, we took water taxi from town to the beach to avoid long walk in the afternoon sun, and went back to town after 5pm when sun settled down. It was...More

Beautiful beach with a very long stretch of white sand along gorgeous blue waters. This sea here has strong tides and rough waves, so it's not ideal for swimming. If you want to swim, you have to turn to the right and walk to the...More

Just to echo everything said previously. It’s a long, hot walk, we’re active, fit forty-somethings and found it less than comfortable but worth it. So, go early and take water. The first beach is an easy enough walk but not really for sitting on. The...More

A bit of a walk from the city centre but as soon as you enter the park bit it's really peaceful and nice. There's a brick path which takes you to the beach (takes about 30 mins). The beach itself is very wide and beautiful....More

After arriving in Puerto Ayora, our guide took us to Tortuga Bay which is a beautiful ocean side stretch of sandy walkable beaches. This is where we were introduced to those prehistoric sea iguanas that love to sun bath on the sands. We took a...More

Following a long walk along a brick path (takes 30-45 minutes) we finally arrived at Tortuga Bay. A long white sand beach great for surfing and swimming. We walked along with the crashing waves only to see baby white tip sharks zipping through the breaking...More

At the park entrance there is an office where you must register. Although the registry asks for your passport number, the attendant only asked for our hotel name and that was all. It is a 2.5km walk over paved brick path. The path has some...More
