Tortuga Bay’s Playa Brava

Playa Brava

Playa Brava attracts many locals and some tourists. Brava means rough in Spanish. Especially during the day this vast white beach is dotted with iguanas and teeming with ghost crabs and a large variety of birds. The curiosity and fearlessness of the animals is one of the many characteristics that make Galapagos truly special.
