Just before that tou see a little bay where the water is much... More

The more time I spend in the Galapagos, the more I am in love with their unique beauty. Great diving.

The beach is beautiful with lots of white sand and enough space to spread out. The walk to the beach takes 40 minutes but is worth it, and the trail is in good condition, it's a paved stone pathway. Make sure to bring your camera, there are ALOT of marine iguanas, crabs, and we did see a couple of seals.... More

We were worried at first about the 40 minute walk to the beach, but it was all worth it when we saw the beach. The sand was so soft we wanted to roll around in it. We saw some HUGE iguanas that didn't seem to mind us being there at all. We took a dip in the refreshingly cold water... More

Wonderful beach, great wildlife, but be prepared to hike. Trail is in good condition, but undulates out to the beach and there are several minor climbs. Not a stroll, but worth the workout.

Beautiful!! It was a great walk and definitely worthwhile. We saw many sea iguanas and sea birds. We were early enough to have the place all to ourselves for an hour or so.

Keep walking to get to the far right sight of the beach to another secret swim spot! It's work the walk!

Great beach for playing frisbee with friends Bit of a walk to get to and no conveniences there so bring all that u need A bit short on the usually abundant Galapagos wildlife but still a few iguanas and fish to see Great for a beach day which I'm sure is what the locals use it for 😎

The white sands here are stunning. The main wildlife we saw was iguanas. Not ideal for snorkeling as the water isn't the clearest and you have to go really far out as it's so so shallow. Good place for kids and first time snorkeling. We did see some sea lions swimming a few metres from us. Kayaks they hire are... More
