“Heaven on Earth!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This was one of our favorite places in our entire Galapagos journey! Every morning we would go and snorkel in crystal blue water among sea lions, turtles, penguins, rays, etc. We got a bit tired of the "tour routine" and really enjoyed the freedom to explore at our own pace, as long as our hearts desired. There was often only a few other people around and plenty of wildlife to enjoy.

“Turtles, sealions, fishes and iguanas..and maybe more”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Why pay to see wildlife if you can swim all day with them for free with it. You wont regret spending your time in this spectacular big "swimming pool" and have fun snorkeling.

“A really nice walk in a magical place”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

This place is beautiful. There is wildlife all around. The water is crystal clear. There are some vendors selling food, souvenirs, and tours. A great place to spend the day.

“Wonderful playful sea lions”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

This is a beautiful little area. There is a nice hike through the mangrove swamps that you can take a stroller on. It leads to a beautiful little cove that had lovely birds and playful sea lions. There is a nice little beach area also, and some small concession stands there. A good place to visit with kids.

“Worth going to....”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

We walked to this beach from our hotel in town although you can take a taxi or the bus. When we arrived at the trail into the bay, the beach area near the pier was swarming with sea lions that put on an entertaining show.
You walk down a clearly marked pathway to get to a little bay where you can snorkel and swim. The snorkelling was pretty good.
We really enjoyed this free and easy to find beach. It's defintely worth going there!
