Silversea Luxury Cruises À SANTA CRUZ (Las Bachas)

SANTA CRUZ (Las Bachas)

Bachas Beach is found on Santa Cruz’s northern shore less than 5 kilometers west-southwest of Baltra and its former US Army Air base –both US Navy and Army had selected the island for their air base and two runways had been built. The base needed water to be brought by barges from San Cristobal. Rudimentary remains of two of the barges can still be seen in the sand. These barges, mispronounced as “bachas” by the Ecuadorians, gave the beach its name. View more

Bachas Beach and its turquoise waters is not only an excellent site for swimming; the beach is also a preferred nesting site for Pacific green turtles on Santa Cruz –white sticks in the sand mark the many nests. Inland from the beach is a brackish lagoon where occasionally American Flamingos are seen. Marine iguanas can be seen in the water or ashore, while Sally Lightfoot crabs on the rocks give a few splashes of color.
