Tasaste - Beach Jama - Ecuador

You’ll find this beach wedged between the cliffs up north (20 mins) that form part of Jama's coastline. It’s a local and favorite hangout for residents, who make the trip to come and sunbathe, relax, and have BBQ’s (huts with grills, open to the public, are available). You might think that it’s the turtle-shaped shack that’s the main attraction, when really – just right around the corner of the beach to the north - you’ll find a pretty fascinating rock formation that the locals call El Arco del Amor (The Love Arch). Its name comes from the fact that the ancestral, indigenous communities of the area used to hold their wedding ceremonies underneath it. Additionally, you can typically rent a boat for an hour ($10) from any of the fishermen and get a different vantage point of this bit of coastline, or go swimming out in open water for a while.

Getting There

Access to this beach is incredibly limited, with moto-taxi's incapable of getting there due to the distance and terrain. The only way to get there is to hire a truck to take you there (and arrange a pick up time as well). Ask around town, or any of the moto-taxi's if they can hook you up.
