Tortuga Bay is located on the Santa Cruz Island, about a 20-minute walk from the main water taxi dock in Puerto Ayora. The walking path is 1.55 miles (2,490m) and is open from six in the morning to six in the evening. Tortuga Bay has a gigantic, perfectly preserved beach that is forbidden to swimmers and is preserved for the wildlife where many marine iguanas, Galapagos crabs and birds are seen dotted along the volcanic rocks.
