I went for snorkel at this beach and wow so much fun, just a few feet from the beach we encounter sea turtles and played with a small sea lion that was hanging out in the area. Very friendly animals, yet a bit scary when they get very close and bump in to you. Incredible place, a must see while... More

Just a $3 taxi ride from town I would highly recommend that you pop over to this beach if you can. The surf was impressive and there was plenty of animal life such as sea lions, marine iguanas, herons, boobies etc.

We visited this beach 3 times and loved it!! The first time we went for a walk beyond the beach (about a 40 min. walk). It was a marked path. As you went along, you could see the beautiful sea as the waves came in. Alot of marine iguanas, many birds by the cliffs and a spactular view at the... More

Love love love love love! I fell in love on this beach! My fiancé and I are obviously animal lovers, but we have a special fondness for mammals! Interacting with the sea lions, especially the pups, made our trip! The snorkeling is also great, notably at low tide, and not only sea lions, but turtles and fish frequent the shore.... More

Nice beach close to the town but beware rough seas and horseflies. Can see turtles and rays if you're lucky. Water clear

Went in the late afternoon for about 2 hours prior to sunset. Great place to see sea turtles, sea lions and various fish species. Enter from the left side (less rocky). Water is relatively calm within the inlet.

La Loberia beach is located just 10 minutes away from the airport of San Cristobal Island. The beach gets its name due to the large number of sea lions resting on the rocks and the white coral sand. Despite being outside the boundaries of the National Park area, due to its great importance, the park staff obliges for its care... More
