‘Las Grietas’ is a fantastic swimming spot that is easily reachable from the town of Puerto Ayora. The name means the ‘crack’ and describes the inviting water-filled crevice in between two tall cliffs. Locals can be seen fearlessly jumping from the cliffs, so it also makes a good people watching spot. To reach the area from central Puerto Ayora take a short water taxi across the port to the Angermeyer Point, and walk towards the signed Finch Bay hotel. From the hotel you continue past a lava-strewn path for five or ten minutes until you reach the area.
