Santa Cruz, Galapagos: Hiking Playa Tortuga

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.

They didn’t. 🙂
