Cerro Brujo, San Cristobal

4.9
#4 of 8 in Beaches in San Cristobal
Dramatic cliffs, tide pools, crystal clear waters, and soft white sand make Cerro Brujo among the top beaches of the Galapagos Islands. Swim and laze around on the sand with the local sea lions, or go snorkeling to view other marine life such as fish and red crabs. Take a boat ride to the cathedral cavern if the tide isn't too high. From the shore you can see the remarkable formation of Kicker Rock. Because of the relative lack of shade at the beach, be sure to bring sunscreen.

  • You can't go wrong with this beach! Soft white powdery sand, beautiful landscape, and seclusion. You will need a boat to get here, and there are no facilities. Sea lions galore that are happy to play ...  more »
  • Probably the most beautiful beach I have ever been to. The white sand is so fine and the water so clear.  more »

  • Came here in October 2017 with Guiding Galapagos after visiting Kicker Rock. This beach is on the western side of San Cristobal and east of Kicker Rock. We disembarked from the boat and just walked from the boat to the sand. It is a gorgeous beach. This place could be on postcards! We walked around a bunch and saw snail, tiny fish, gecko, frigates, small shore birds, hermit crabs, mangroves. We walked up a sandy hill (maybe there was a better way up?) and able to see Kicker Rock in the distance.
  • Spectacular. To get it you have to go by boat from San Cristobal
