Such a beautiful walk in white sand and turquoise water. It is the most beautiful island in the caribbean. You can do snorkeling and other many aquatic activities to see the sea wildlife. The boat fee is around 10$.

Very nice walk in nature in which you could see different birds and a lovely beach if you want to have a good swim.

Next time I would figure out a way to take a boat out here instead of walking. It is about one kilometer each way. On the way back the sun was intense!

Entry is for free, but you need to register. It's a 40min walk from the street to the beach, on a pathwalk with trees on the side. It's almost like walking through a dessert garden. When we got to the beach, we were a bit...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
