Concha Perla is not a beach, it's a spot. It's a fee place where you can go swim or snorkel. There's a path made of wood where you can walk to Concha Perla. The walking is around 15 to 25 minutes. Near to the dock....More

It is the ideal place: there is no danger, or currents but you can see plenty of sea lions, turtles, sharks, and lots of other interesting things. It was freezing in July and August, but it was really worth it.

We were told this was a great snorkling spot where we would see sharks and rays and great fish. But the water was not clear and we didn't see much at all. The beach nearby was good for a swim.

We saw seals, sea turtles, rays, beautiful fish and iguanas swimming here. We brought our own snorkel gear and came in the early mornings and afternoons- I'd highly recommend checking this spot out!

One of those places that is so close and obvious, that you might miss it! Lethargic iguanas and silly sea lions litter the boardwalk you must traverse to access this gem..if you aren't careful stepping over them you will step on them (please don't!!!). You...More

We loved Concha de Perla. It's a small lagoon starting in the place justifully called "Iguana crossing" on Isabela island. Indeed, there are a lot of iguanas crossing the road near the sunset, where the boardwalk begins. Then you'll walk along the lagoon and see...More

The water was not that clear and no coral in the area. I only saw a few types of fish out there. Not that impressed.
