I highly recommend going to the beach. Take a cab from town, about 3 dollars one way. Also take snorkel equipment and a camera!

The beach is around 20 min walk from the center, but there are no signs how to get there, so I recommend taking a taxi ($3) and you can walk back if you want to. There are a lot of sea lions on the beach and you can swim with them as well, but keep your distance. We also saw... More

Its behind the airport...with a good long walk!!..a taxi from town to the entrance of the beach is only 3 bucks...so if you want to bring all snorkelling gear...its a good idea to take taxi!! I went there twice and both time...i... More

Its about an hour walk from town. Nothing to see along the way so take a taxi for $3. This is the windward side of the island so expect some chop and waves along the coast.

This beach is charming because you can walk and sleep with the sea lions truly feel peace and tranquility only. You must be careful with rocky stones as you can be hurt when snorkeling, I think this place is ideal to relax and unwind.

This beach is located at about 30-40 minutes of walking from the town, at the airport end! Lovely to relax at with some sand and a lot of rock. Sea lions and marine iguanas are abundant as are the frigate birds. Swimming and snorkeling were OK but not brilliant owing to the waves and water movements which meant constantly handing... More

We went to Las Loberias on a Thursday and had the entire beach to ourselves. What a gem. Lots of iguana's and sea lions and the ocean. I highly suggest you visit when in San Cristobol. Take a taxi and stay for an hour...well worth it.
