This white sandy beach area is one of the most famous in the Galapagos, both for its beauty and for its wildlife. Sightings of marine iguanas, sea lions, crabs, birds and, of course, turtles are frequent.

There are two main stretches of beach; the first is popular for surfing, though currents can be strong, while the second is more conducive to swimming and snorkeling. Colorful reef fish, rays and white tip reef shark have all been spotted here.

To get to Tortuga Bay, you must hike a stone and boardwalk path through trees and cacti, where you might spot some of the Galapagos’ famous birds, such as flamingos, finches, pelicans and the blue-footed booby. Whether you come for the sand or the wildlife, Tortuga Bay is one of the Galapagos’ best offerings for both.
