Bahia Borrero

Bahia Borrero Overview
Bahía Borrero is an exquisite natural wonder situated on the northern side of Santa Cruz Island. With its stunning white-sand beach and shimmering turquoise waters, it is an ideal location for visitors seeking a peaceful and scenic spot to relax and unwind.

One of the most notable features of Bahía Borrero is the high number of sea turtles that nest here during the nesting season, which runs from December to March. These magnificent creatures can be seen emerging from the waves, crawling up the beach to lay their eggs, and returning to the sea. Witnessing this incredible natural event is an unforgettable experience that shouldn't be missed.

Apart from turtle watching, Bahía Borrero is also a haven for snorkelers and swimmers. The calm, crystal-clear waters offer excellent visibility, and snorkelers can expect to encounter an abundance of marine life, including colorful tropical fish, rays, and reef sharks. The highlight, of course, is swimming alongside the gentle giants of the sea, the sea turtles, as they gracefully glide through the water.

The surrounding landscape of Bahía Borrero is equally impressive, with a lush green forest providing a breathtaking backdrop to the stunning beach. Visitors can take a leisurely stroll through the forest and spot a variety of bird species, including the Yellow Warbler and finches.
