Playa De La Estación / Station Beach - Beach Puerto Ayora - Ecuador

The Station beach is a small, rocky beach located off of the road that leads to the Charles Darwin Research Station. It’s the closest beach to town and the easiest one to reach, so sometimes it fills up. The small patch of white sand is bordered on either side by some jagged lava rocks, where you might see some shore birds like Pelicans or gulls, and marine iguanas are common. It isn’t the best beach, but it is close to town.

It’s possible to snorkel here, and you may see some bright reef fish near the rocks on either side.

Don’t bring any valuables to the beach, and if you do, keep a close eye on them.
