Puerto Chino - San Cristóbal

Galapagos Islands


Located 24 km from the town of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, Puerto Chino is a gorgeous white-sand beach that can be reached by following an easy trail for a 15-minute walk. On the path, you can observe Finches, mockingbirds, lava lizards, and the local Prickly Pears, a species of cactus resembling trees. The beach, bordered by rocky cliffs, is a great spot for relaxing in the sun, swimming and snorkeling. You can often encounter sea lion, Galapagos green turtles and rays. By climbing the rocks around the beach, you can spot blue-footed boobies and get a lovely sight across the bay.
