There is a small beach in front of Finch Bay Hotel. This beach is called Punta Estrada Beach and as it is protected in a bay the water is calm and good for swimming. When I passed this beach the first time on my way to Las Grietas I didn’t have any swimwear with me, but I thought I could make a stop the next day to snorkel along the edge of the mangrove and sit in the sun on the beach for a while, but now it didn’t turn out that way.

At Tortuga Bay there is a long white sandy beach, but because the currents can be very strong here this beach is not good for swimming. However, if you walk to the end of the beach at Tortuga Bay you will come to the small protected beach Playa Mansa (photo 2,3 and 4).

You can also swim from the small beach, Station Beach, near Charles Darwin Research Station.
