“great sea lion interactions here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We saw plenty of lobos during our 9 days on the islands, but this place was a standout for the chance to observe the sea lions interacting, especially the moms and pups searching for each other. The experience suffers a bit from the number of human observers, but still highly recommended.

“Wonderful place to see sealions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

If you want to see sea lions in the wild, and not lying on the pier, this is the place to see.

We saw plenty of females and pups being guarded aggressively by an alpha male. The walk along the lava rocks was wonderful and calming.

“Great beach with wildlife near town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

20 minute walk or $2 taxi from town so really easy to visit. Put it on the list to visit or go more than once. Water not that warm but good snorkelling.

“My Favorite on San Cristobal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Having lived on San Cristobal for three months, I had the pleasure of enjoying Loberia many, many times. It's approximately a 25 minute walk one-way, but a $1 taxi will bring you there without a problem. As this beach is further from Puerto Baquerizo than many others, but there aren't as many people there and during the sea lion birthing season (begins in September) you can upwards of 15 sea lions pups playing or soaking up the sun.The snorkeling is good as well, with numerous tortugas and colorful fish. Continue along the beach and brave the lava rock (follow the painted white stakes) to the cliff, where you can watch swallow-tailed gulls, frigates, and blue-footed boobies fly over your head.
