“Great for surfing or simply relaxing”
Review of Puerto Chino Beach

Reviewed 13 May 2014

Picturesque beach with a short walk down from the parking area. Several birds and sea lions. BBQ area available also. Great for amateur surfers. Went in the morning and left mid afternoon since the tide was in and not much beach remained.

This was the last stop of a half day highlands tour. Bring plenty of water and snacks. It was a nice beach that was fun to body surf and watch birds. If you take this package tour make sure in includes the GIANT TREEHOUSE stop on your way up. It is so spectacular and sad that it's not advertised well. There is so much more than meets the eye....up, down, underground,...etc.

We combined a trip to Puerto chino beach, junco lake and the tortoise reserve in one afternoon. We arranged this with a taxi driver who took us for the whole tour for $75 for 2 people. We spoke little Spanish and he spoke little English but we got along fine and had a great afternoon. If you learn a little Spanish before you go to the Galapagos you will learn a lot more. Some tour operators organise this from town (highlands tour) but we were able to do it ourselves to go straight away. Puerto Chino beach was beautiful with white sand and clear water. There is a 15-20 minute walk on a paved pathway from the carpark. We saw Blue footed Boobies on the cliffs at the end of the beach and were able to walk quite close to them. We also saw turtles swimming.

This was the last stop of our Highland Tour. Very nice snorkeling from a sandy beach. From a short easy climb up a cliff you can see plenty of Blue-footed Boobies.

White sand powder beach, turquoise waters, BUT very wavy, lot's of grass and HORSEFLIES will eat you alive. It's near impossible to be comfortable for 1 minute. You can skip this beach for others.
