Playa Ochoa

This small Island just an hour from San Cristobal Island is a subtle introduction to the Galápagos Islands. It is an easy wet landing with a short trail leading to a sand beach good for swimming. Pelicans and other sea birds fly overhead. There is a small tidal lagoon behind the beach where sea birds can be observed as well as the rare Chatham mockingbird. This is a great place for snorkeling.
