At short distance from Puerto Ayora there is a path through the thorny wilderness to Tortuga Beach. You can walk there in approximately 45 minutes. It is a wonderful, huge, deserted and white-sanded beach with rather big waves. It is not recommended to swim there. If you want to do so, you can continue to another beach, Playa Mansa, in a small bay with very quiet water.
We saw a baby shark and while having lunch we had a lot of feathered friends.
You know that they are real friends, if they stay even when food is empty. They didn’t. 🙂
