After breakfast, we leave to Tortuga Bay, voted as Ecuador´s best beach. We walk from Puerto Ayora’s western border, 2Km (1.3miles) along a fairly flat and straight paved path, where we explore and understand more about the arid zone´s deciduous forest and its inhabitants. First, we arrive to Playa Brava, a stunning 1km long snow-white beach, a seasonal nesting site for the green sea turtles. A few minutes further, we reach Playa Mansa, a secluded natural mangrove cove, with clear and tranquil waters, ideal for swimming, snorkelling, paddling on tandem kayaks, or simply enjoying the landscape from the shade of a mangrove. We will board a small yacht to sail back to The Hotel´s dock at Academy Bay. Lunch at Finch Bay. For the afternoon, the grand finale includes strolling around the Charles Darwin Research Station where the highlight is the conservation program for the iconic giant tortoises.
