  • Beautiful beach full of sea lions. Busier beach with lots of sunbathers and snorkelers. La Loberia and Tijeretas are easier to swim, but still nice for snorkelling.  more »
  • This beach is just a short walk from the city. You walk past Playa Mann beach and follow the gravel road. Between vegetation and rocks are present marine iguanas and on the beach a large colony of sea lions. Behind it there are a variety of rare plants, such as the Lava Cactus, the Manzanillo ... etc You can then walk up a path to a lookout point there you have a super nice view.
