One of the most popular spots in San Cristobal. Well earned reputations for its location and views. You can walk there and enjoy it without thinking too much.

This is a nice beach but frequented by many so it gets very busy. We wandered down from our local B&B to watch sunset but found other beaches to swim in.

The beach was crowded and the water surprisingly cool. It was fun to swim with the sea lions, which were plentiful, and we enjoyed the day. But it isn't the tropical beach experience you might get in the Florida Keys, for example. On the good...More

This small beach wouldn't offer anything exceptional if it wasn't for the colony of sea lions that mangle with the tourists. It is a 5 minutes walk from the port, which makes it quite an amazing, accessible place to swim with the local marine mammals.
