I'm not sure if this warrants to be the best beach in South America or even Ecuador but it's the best beach we've been to so far and definitely worth a visit! At time of writing - it closes at 4 pm and we've heard that folks can't really arrive after 3:30 pm. When you get there you can rent... 更多
If you are in or near Puerto Lopez, do not miss going to this beach! It is clean, free, and completely surrounded by Machililla National Park. Bathroom and shower facilities there, plus a kiosk with touristy stuff. We stopped by on a Sunday and it was fairly crowded. Came back on a Tuesday morning at 9am and had the entire... 更多
I was told this was the most beautiful beach in all of Ecuador, and while I've only stopped at 5 beach locations, I agree! Hike to the viewpoint, then down the other side toward Isla Tortuga. It's absolutely breathtaking. Note that there is security to check your bag before walking to the beach and you can only stay until 4... 更多

We did not do the hike through the national park to view the beaches from above as it was way too hot and did... 更多

Although this once hidden gem has become extremely much more popular since entrance to the beach became free, (as it really should be!) you shouldn't miss a visit to Los Frailes Beach if in the area. Most will tell you that it is one of the most photographed beaches in all of America, and once you are there you will... 更多
A little hard to get to and back again, but well worth the effort. It's hard to imagine a more beautiful, peaceful cove on the shore of any country in the world.
Located in the Machalilla National Park, the Playa de los Frailes is probably one of Ecuador's finest beach. The bay is surrounded by cliffs covered by some typical tropical dry vegetation and the view from the Mirador is breathtaking. It is quiet easy to get there from Puerto Lopez, a taxi shouldn't cost you more than 5 dollars, otherwise it... 更多
