The answer is a simple: NO; there are better beaches around the island, such as Tortuga Bay, Playa Mansa, Playa El Garrapatero, and Hidden Beach.

The beaches are beautiful and the Galapagos government makes sure that there aren't a lot of other people on the island at the same time.
The beach is wonderful, sea lions, iguanas, crabs, finches, mockingbirds, pelicans etc. Snorkelling I saw so many fish, sting rays, and a reef shark.There is also part of a whale skeleton on the beach.
