4.7/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
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.
