Puerto Chino Beach, San Cristobal
(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.

  • I hired a driver to take me to Puerto Chino and a few other locations in the highlands. It was worth the trip...lobos marinos lounging on the beach, some seabirds up on the rocks. Nice place to relax ...  more »
  • It is a beautiful beach located 30 minutes from the center of San Cristobal, must walk 10 minutes from the parking lot to the beach, and water should be because there are no shops nearby

  • Quiet beach of golden sand, in which it is possible to see the sea lions resting on the sand or swimming around people swimming in the ocean. After a short walk through wood road, it is possible to reach this beach. Is located away from the dock so getting it necessary to hire a taxi (for $60 dollars a taxi driver takes to 4 places on the island for about 4 hours, it is suggested to share expenses with other tourists (max 4 tourists can go in cabs/vans).)
