Puerto Grande - Beach San Cristobal - Ecuador

Puerto Grande is a public beach on the coast of San Cristobal Island not too far from Kicker Rock. It’s accessible by boat from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. It’s popular with day-tripping families from town who have their own boat: cruise ships don’t usually go there and it’s unlikely to be included on any tour. It’s a nice beach, and the swimming and snorkeling there are pretty good.

According to some locals, there is pirate treasure buried at Puerto Grande, although no one has ever found any. Most likely, the “treasure” is one of the best beaches in Galapagos!
