This beach area provides a decent beach but also wildlife and birds on the beach or its immediate hinterland, such as the lagoons. We saw flamingo there

My family and I rode our hotel bikes to this hidden, lovely beach. The only way to the beach is a walk along a long path. However, it’s worth it. You pay a small entry fee, after leaving our bikes at the entrance. We went to explore and was amazed of a large empty and open beach area. Then we walked further and found many folks in a smaller cozy beach area. Waters and sea animals are so pretty to see. What a great beach!

Playa las Banchas is a lovely beach that happens to have some rusting barges left over from World War II. We found out that the American Army was in the Galapagos. They built an air base in Baltra that is now the airport and they left some barges that are almost unidentifiable but is worth the time for the history.

For land based Galapagos trips, this beach is a must if you plan to stay at all in the highlands of Santa Cruz! The beach is a short bike ride from the highlands, and lets you see a different side of Santa Cruz than the busier port city of Puerto Ayora. The beach was almost deserted of tourists, which made it even more pleasant. We saw flamingos in the lagoon area, and came across a tortoise on the road during our bike ride in! Our only complaint is that we should have budgeted more time.
