Relax on magnificent San Clemente Beach, a pristine stretch of sand where you are free to do whatever you please, from beach combing to simply lying in the sun.
Depart from the pier and drive north along the picturesque Pacific coastline to quaint San Lorenzo, a fishing village in the province of Manabí. San Lorenzo has a beach that's wide and flat, tropical waters, and a warm air temperature tempered by the refreshing ocean breeze.
Although San Clemente Beach is close to the equator, the temperatures here usually remain in the 70's and 80's because of the cooling Humboldt Current, which runs up the west coast of South America from Antarctica. During your time at this pristine beach, you might sunbathe, read, swim or do nothing more energetic than sip a cool drink.
While there isn't much natural shade on the beach itself, you will have access to the Palmazul Hotel, whose property is dotted with palm trees. On the beach, shaded lounge chairs are provided by the hotel, or if you prefer you may relax on the sand or next to the pool. Three complimentary soft-drinks will also be provided. After your time at San Clemente Beach, you'll transfer back to the pier.
Please note: This tour includes limited walking, mainly at the guests' discretion. There will be natural, sandy surfaces to negotiate. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. A long-sleeved light cotton shirt and pants worn over swimwear; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; insect repellant; a towel from the ship; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Those who participate in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility.
