The first thing that comes to mind when I recall my Tortuga Bay visit is - Long Hot Walk. If you are coming from downtown, you will have to take a short hike up a hill to sign in for the beach. If you did...More

The water is rough at the beach but very calm in the beach just over the hill which is where most people swim. The water that the bay adjacent to the main beach reminded me more of a lake. There really isn't any snorkel opportunities...More

There are lots of reviews about the two beaches at Tortuga Bay so I will just add some points that you might not see in other reviews. TAKE SUNCREEN (50+) TOWELS, WATER, AND SNACKS – if you don’t have a backpack purchase one for your...More

Although the beach is not as big as I expected, it still worth to visit as there are so many Marine Iguanas! They are so cute and you can take picture with them closely but don't touch them.

If you go to the Galápagos you must go to this beach. It is very different from other beaches. You can feel nature all over around. Make sure you include this in your itinerary!

From Puerto Ayora, it's a short hike through a gate on a hill to a small check-in building. Free admission; just sign in. Great stone walkway takes you to the wide expanse of Tortuga beach where you'll see surfers and tons of iguanas and crabs....More

The beach is not good, plenty of lava rocks all over. But you might find a path to the beauty of this little beach. Diving with the right stuff might bring you an unforgetable experience. Otherwise the beach is not much to write home about.

Definitely worth the walk to this beach. Iguanas and finches everywhere, not to mention the pristine sand beach and crystal clear water. Wear lots of sunscreen. Not much for snorkeling but great for swimming.
