访问Playa LOS Flailes的明确指南

Playa Los Frailes (the Friars Beach) was our final stop on our coastal adventure in Ecuador. And, we're happy to report, we saved the most beautiful beach till last.

坐落在Machililia国家公园,在其他几个海滩和灌木丛中,这是丑陋的镇上的便宜和轻松的一天之旅Puerto Lopez.. This is how we did it.


一个小时IKE THROUGH THE FOREST

就像生活中的任何伟大一样,LOS虚额需要一点努力达到。当然,您可以在几分钟内拍摄入口的几个Tuk-Tuks之一,但如果您喜欢我们,在您到达那里之前,您将更喜欢徒步旅行!

The hike begins a few hundred metres from the entrance where you take a well-marked trail off the road and into the arid forest. Lizards scatter underfoot and the ground is so dry the smallest of sparks would set it alight.

花点时间或两个人来转向麦多多斯的路线 - 从悬崖高于海洋高于海洋的观点只是令人叹为观止。大片绿松石水包裹在海岸露出完善的白色沙子。我们看到没有人,与别的秃头留下别的秃鹫。

Los Frailes, Machalilla National Park

This is an easy walk despite the heat along flat, dry scrubland however you should definitely opt for trainers over flip flops.

FIRST BEACH

第一个海滩,您将达到,是Playa Priouta,一个小湾家,依旧为数百螃蟹。这里的岸边是用小球的大麻,作为螃蟹饲料的马赛克,有时唯一的证据是埋在脚下的唯一证据。

Definitely don't swim here unless you fancy a strong undercurrent taking you out to sea.

第二个海滩

After rambling a little further through the desert-like terrain you will reach playa la tortuguita. The name may lead you to believe that you will find turtles at this beach, but alas you will have to be satisfied with an isolated white sand beach. We're sure you won't miss them!

It is worth noting that the trail can become a little confusing at this point. Do not head back the way you came, instead follow the coast line, until you reach the sign above. From here take a left back on to the trail.

LOS FRAILES

随着阳光击败你的背部,这条道路终于开辟了洛杉矶虚人,你会意识到为什么这被认为是厄瓜多尔最美丽的海滩之一。

Take the time to enjoy the day. Take a dip, or several, in the aquamarine ocean, read a book or simply spread yourself upon the beautifully soft sand and relax. You deserve it!


THINGS TO KNOW

  • Entrance to the park is completely free.

  • 鉴于热量,我们建议您早期从Puerto Lopez出发,以便在它变得太热之前完成散步。

  • Bring plenty of water, suncream and snacks/lunch. In the car park behind Los Frailes, there is a man selling drinks and ice-cream, but not much else.

  • Los Frailes海滩上没有阴影,遮阳伞可以租用停车场里的男子每天4美元。

  • 停车场有更衣室和浴室。

  • The park shuts at 4.30 p.m; make sure you find a tuk-tuk or hitch a ride before this.

  • We'd recommend trying to visit on a weekday. Ecuadorian families love the beach and, if you visit on Saturday or Sunday, it's possible that Los Frailes would be packed and ruined by crowds.


HOW TO GET THERE

FromPuerto Lopez.那take a tuk-tuk / moto-taxi for $1 to the bus terminal outside town. Any bus heading in the direction of Manta will pass the park entrance - just make sure to double check with the driver that the bus is going to 'El Parque Nacional Machalilla'.

The journey should take around 10-15 minutes (12 kms), costing $0.5 per person.

Once dropped outside the park entrance, you will need to register your details at the reception. After that, you have two options. You can, like us, walk the 2.5 km trail to Los Frailes (around 1 hour) or you can pay a tuk-tuk to drive you straight to the Los Frailes beach.

Due to the beauty on offer by walking, that's what we would recommend. We did however end up taking a tuk-tuk back from the beach to the park entrance in the afternoon (price of $2 haggled from $3). From there, you can either hitch-hike back to Puerto Lopez or wait for one of the buses which pass by every 20 minutes or so.
