Our tour driver took us here. There were very few people as it was late morning on an overcast day. The beach is about a 10 minute walk from the car park. It was very quiet and tranquil.

Third stop on the Highlands Tour and one that shouldn't be rushed, so bring your repellent as those pesky insects are everywhere, a towel and simply enjoy. I spotted a few sharks near the shoreline and a couple of sea lions chilling on the rocks...More

The walk to the beach is lovely & once you get there you will not be disappointed! Bring bug spray as there are black flies (not sure what they are called) that do bite. They are attracted to wet skin for some reason.

Take your time to go there. It is usually a part of a tour with the highlands (also worth it). Safe place, bring your sunblock and enjoy this still not so popular spot in Galapagos.

We went to the tortuous sanctuary and then onto Puerto Chino Beach. Very secluded and beautiful beach. A bit of a walk from the main road. Then also saw the Tree House. Really cute.

This beach is part of a 5-hour-taxi tour across San Cristobal. Usually, the taxi drivers give you one hour for the beach. Insist in two hours, and rather skip the restaurant stops. You may take some picnic food with you, since the beach is pristine...More

A really nice and sunny beach with a ton of playful sea lions out and about. One star off for the 15 minute sweaty trek needed to take to get down to the beach.
