The beach is clean with nice sand. Great to watch the pelicans picking up food diving into the sea. There are some hikes on the island as well. Worth it.

We visited here on a Lindblad/National Geographic cruise. We snorkeled at 8:00 am before the other tour boats arrived and then toured around the island in Zodiacs. Snorkeling with the sea lions was amazing-definitely a check-off on the bucket list!
