Puerto Chino Beach, San Cristobal

4.7
#2 of 28 in Outdoors in San Cristobal
Make your way to the southeast of San Cristobal island to reach Puerto Chino Beach, a remote beach with a variety of winged and flippered inhabitants. The fine white sand offers plenty of space to stretch out, while the calm water makes the beach a popular place to go swimming. In the mangroves that lie just behind the sand, you'll see finches, who'll be very keen to share any snacks you might have. The rocky outcrops to the left and right of the sandy beach are home to sea lions, though you should definitely not share any snacks with them, as they become very territorial when approached or spooked. To plan San Cristobal vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • This is safely the best beach of San Cristobal that is accessible by vehicle (there are others but you get there by boat). The sand is a very fine talc, with very good depth to bathe peacefully and enjoy. This place is reached by taxi depending on the time one stays, they do not wait more than 3 hours costs 50 to 80 dollars. Perform snorquel is a day that had quite commonplace, but you can still see shoals of sardines, turtles, sharks and a variety of fish.

  • Puerto Chino is the best beach of San Cristobal Galapagos, you will arrive by taxi with whom you can guide the return. After walking along a path you reach a small beach full of sea lions, birds and beautiful vegetation. The water invites you to swim accompanied by sea turtles. Don't forget repellent and food to eat.
