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

This is a quiet and lovely spot to snorkel. Waves are not too strong and you can see several sea turtles and schools of fish. The water is not murky, which helps. There are some sea lions, but not too many so it does not smell bad like Playa Carola or Playa Mann. Passed La Loberia, you can follow a... More

The beach itself is full of sea lions, but the real gem here is snorkeling in the water, since you'll get to see everything from Eagle Rays, huge sea turtles, eels, and a bunch of colorful fishes. And you'll definitely get to swim with sea lions, which are playful and a joy to watch. On the road here, you'll pass... More

Nice beach, nice place to beach snorkel. Cool hike up to a cliff but recommend sneakers or hiking shoes, not sandals or flip flops.
