Tons of lobos marinos and quite near to the city. Above all don't forget your snorkling kit! I think it's a MUST if you like snorkling

This place is great for a (free) snorkeling trip! Rent some equipment in town and male sure that you are at Las Loberias in the morning (with low tide). Marine Iguanas, sea lions, sea turtles, sharks... They are all here in the water if you're lucky. Great place to relax as well, highly recommended!

This is a very nice beach, quite close to town. Take water and/or vood and enjoy a nive (half) day in the sun, snorkeling, surfing or watching the sealions.

We walked from town to the main beach (about half an hour slow walking.) There were lots of seals, pelicans and marine iguanas lounging on the main beach. At the far end of the beach there is a path marked with black and white posts which takes you along the volcanic cliff edge where there were lots of nesting seabirds.... More

This was my favorite of the 6 different activities we did. We took along a guide (in our case Dany of Shark Sky) who explained all of the animals on the way. We saw dozens of Marine Iguanas very close up, frigates, blue footed boobies, sea lions, lava lizards and snorkeled with sea turtles.

This is a wonderful place with lots of sea lions around, you can swim with the, be careful, lots of poppies around too. Reachable on foot or by bike. Walking to the reefs is also recommended you can see lots of iguanas and many birds including blue-footed boobies.

It is hard to write about the wonder that is Galapagos Islands. It is a national park and you cannot get enough of visiting as much as you can. It is the way it should between man and nature

Just went for a walk here and saw many more sea lions and pups. There are certainly better beaches on Santa Cruz and Isabela Islands in my opinion just because I like to walk on the beach. Scrambled over some volcanic rocks and saw marine iguanas. Probably there is a better experience at this beach if one surfs or snorkels.... More

Boobies, marine iguanas, sea lions, sea turtles, frigate birds and fish galore. This beach has it all. We saw four sea turtles within 15 minutes of snorkeling. The sea lions will also swim up to you and then turn away at the last moment. We even met an adorable baby sea lion (Laramie) that followed us around the beach. If... More

I recommend Las Loberias if you a couple of hours free. We found it to be the perfect activity when we landed on San Cristobal in the afternoon. Take a taxi from downtown for $2 - ask them to come get you when you are ready to return! Walk down the path and see the beautiful beach which you will... More
