Cruising the Galapagos Islands make for an amazing adventure, not to mention some fun in the sun, as the beaches are unbeatable. Knowing which beaches to visit can only enhance the experience.
San Cristobal Island offers numerous breathtaking landscapes, but travelers should make it a point to visit Puerto Chino Beach, which is located on the east side of the island.
Those who are looking for a bit of seclusion will certainly find it at Puerto Chino, as cruise ships do not visit the spot. Plus, tourists who go are either in-the-know or signed up for a surfing trip.
The beach is connected to Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, which is the capital of San Cristobal Island, by the only road that crosses the entire land. This could make for a day excursion for people who want to visit the capital city before relaxing in the sun on Puerto Chino Beach for the rest of the afternoon.
Additionally, people who have the opportunity to stay for a night can request permission to camp from the national park.
