Really enjoyed this beach. We walked with our guide down a path first and saw various Galapagos birds and trees. The beach was calm. Swimming was easy and refreshing. The water was not freezing -- even though we supposedly went during the cold water season.

Hiked here the afternoon of July 1 with our Galapagos NP guide, Diego Escobar. Flamingos, marine iguanas, lava lizards, lava gulls, yellow warblers, and brown pelicans, among other wildlife. The beach also allows camping.
