    Compared to the other beaches here that passes unnoticed, a quick ticket to visit Las Cracks, no big deal

    Small Sandy Bay with calm water. Direction on the barrier reef can you his snorkel in a few fish. It also has a few a few lizards and pelicans. The calm shallow waters is well worth the visit with children. During our visit in rather cool weather, the beach was not overcrowded. Before the reef a few surfers were in high waves working, which was nice to see.

    Pretty sandy beach, accessible by boat taxi from Puerto Aroya. Little room at high tide. Nice bar on the road.

Where to stay in Puerto Ayora

As a popular jumping-off point for Galapagos visitors, Puerto Ayora receives loads of tourists, and therefore features many of the accommodation options you might expect from a major destination. Though there are types of lodging to suit all kinds of budgets, prices in general tend to be higher in Puerto Ayora than in mainland Ecuador. The more upscale hotels catering to wealthier visitors lie along the waterfront in the vicinity of Avenida Charles Darwin, and offer excellent access to the sea, port, and restaurant scene. Consider renting out a private apartment room or staying in a smaller-scale hotel a few blocks back from the ocean in order to cut down on costs, as the city itself is easily walkable.
