Category:Tortuga Bay

English: Tortuga Bay is located on the Santa Cruz Island, about a 20 minute walk from the main water taxi dock in Puerto Ayora. The walking path is 1.55 miles long, 2500 meters and is open from six in the morning to six in the evening. Visitors must sign in and out at the start of the path with the Galapagos Parks service office. Toruga Bay has a gigantic, perfectly preserved beach that is forbidden to swimmers and is preserved for the wildlife where many Iguanas, crabs and birds are seen dotted along the lava rocks. There is a separate cove where you can swim where it is common to view Whitetip reef sharks swimming in groups, small fish, birds, and gigantic turtles.
