This beach is covered in playful sea lions. It is a terrific location to snorkel as you will see numerous colorful fish and sea turtles. It is a pretty good hike from town or a $4 taxi ride.

Such a great place to snorkel! So many fish! We also saw sea turtles and sea lions. If you’re a good swimmer, do not need to take a guided tour. You can bring your own snorkel gear and take a $3 taxi to the beach...More
