Cerro Brujo, San Cristobal

4.9
#4 of 7 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.

  • Cerro Brujo is located on the North coast of the island San Cristobal; the itinerary of this site visit can be it in about three hours, including the ride by boat. Its main attraction is the beach of coral sand, more species of flora and fauna. It is an eroded Tuff cone that multipart is composed of lava He is currently a place to observe Lake and coastal birds. Cerro Brujo provides an excellent landscape, from where you can see León Dormido, South from the top of San Cristobal and the surrounding coast to Cerro Brujo. We visited it making the tour of 360 ° to the island. Our friend Carlos Acosta organized us this trip, it was everything perfect up to the detail it had organized. With Carlos, we decided to organize all our our holiday travels. Without a doubt, the best operator of the Islands

  • Sandy Beach is not so much one of sea lion you're not too bothered. Even if they are very much on the beach, sa Lion Beach and smell very bad. This is happening with only a quiet beach transport boat.

  • 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
