Finch Bay Eco-Hotel

This charming Galapagos Hotel has been named after Darwin's famous Finches, abundant in the surroundings. The beach resort is just steps from the beach on a private seaside location and is surrounded by mangroves which gives a beautiful and different view to the ocean.

About the hotel

This Eco-Lodge is located on Santa Cruz Island at Punta Estrada across the bay from the town of Puerto Ayora. It is a peaceful and quiet location, with only pedestrian and bicycle circulation - there are no cars in the neighborhood.

The Finch Bay Hotel accommodates 42 guests in 21 rooms (with twin or king-size beds), each with private facilities, air conditioning and unlimited water supply, as the hotel has its own desalinization plant. This ecologically oriented hotel also boasts innovative garbage processing and recycling programs. The entire infrastructure and the activities offered are totally oriented to a concept of true ecotourism in a pristine natural environment.

Delicious, healthy international and Galapagos inspired menus are prepared daily by our chef, using the freshest ingredients.

Finch Bay is easily accessible. After a two-hour flight from Ecuador's mainland, guests arrive to the airport of Baltra in the Galapagos and then take overland transportation to Puerto Ayora and the Finch Bay Eco-Hotel.

Finch Bay Facilities

Finch Bay is the only full-service Galapagos Eco-Hotel situated directly on a beach.
