Relaxing Activities

  Relaxing Activities - FBH

Sometimes we want an active vacation. Other times, the best vacation is one in which we just lie back and enjoy the best of what our surroundings have to offer us. Or we can choose to combine both. At the Finch Bay, the hotel itself offers many opportunities to take it easy, be it resting on a pool lounge or a hammock, or digging our bare toes into the sand just steps away from our room. Sip a cocktail at the bar or indulge with fine dining at our renowned restaurant and end the day with a massage or watch as the stars illuminate the night sky with constellations from both the northern and southern hemispheres.

Puerto Ayora and other short walks

The hotel’s central location means you can enjoy a short stroll to Las Grietas or a walk on the beach, and of course, explore the town of Puerto Ayora. With its small cafes, boutiques and nightclubs, there is a little something to entertain everyone. Check out everyday life for locals at the farmer’s market on Saturdays or visit the fisherman’s wharf any day of the week and watch out for sea lions who want to taste the day’s catch. You will also find banks, pharmacies and – for our SCUBA diving guests – it’s a relief to know there is a 24/7 hyperbaric chamber in town.
