Puerto Chino Beach, San Cristobal

4.7
#2 of 16 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 Puerto Baquerizo Moreno vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • I was in San Cristobal in September 2017 onwards. Beach Puerto Chino is located in 30 kilometers from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. I took a taxi to $50 for 5:00 for a trip to the Bay Puerto Chino with a visit to the Turtle Farm on the way Galapaguera de Cerro Colorado and Lake Laguna El Junco. It is a very picturesque place. Soft white sand on which rest sea lions. At the weekend, locals come here for a picnic. Although September is the coldest month in Galapagos was water temperature +21 degrees. In the water I counted 5 sea turtles. I like it here very much. I recommend to visit this place.

  • Depending on what are the beach before it was beautiful, and the wind sand, so now there is little space for beach and enough volcanic rock can be seen. However, for all the tourists, we can surprise us with the beauty of the place. Taxis from San Cristóbal, offer tours to this place also that van stopping at the House of the ceibo and el Junco lagoon, La Galapaguera, Chinese port for the cost of $60. I went in October and it was windy, but the view is beautiful, and from the viewpoint, you can see sea turtles which rocks.
