Wonderful beach but go in the morning. I went both morning and afternoon and found afternoon very crowded, whilst the morning was empty.
Be sure to grab a drink at the beach bar. I think it was called La Gata. The staff are so happy and sometimes singing and I had a cocktail and a smoothie there and both had blended ice and were amazing.
There are seals here but (as I write this - seal
colonies move) not as many as in town where there are hundreds.
Great place to watch the world go by and good quality bathing/sand.

Nice enough beach and safe for swimming and snorkeling. Plenty of noisy sea lions. However the beach is often crowded with noisy and irritating tourists/people.
If you're looking for some peace and quiet while relaxing on a beach, this isn't it

This a a small beach which gets busy towards sunset. The view is awesome! Worth grabbing a Pina Colada and chilling. Loads of sea lions in the mix too.

This is a very accessible beach just a short walk from town. Good for swimming and watching the sea lions play. Main reason I went was for the sunsets and I wasn't disappointed.

Nice sandy beach on the West side of town. Lots of fun with sea lions pushing tourists around on the beach (tip - hold your ground and talk to them, they are mostly young or female and are just curious and won't hurt you, for some great photo ops). Food and drinks available as are bathrooms.

I spent two weeks in the Galapagos, and nearly a week was spent on San Cristobal. Every evening I was there, I watched the sunset at this beach. The sea lions are so sweet (from a distance, of course!) and wonderful to watch. It is busy but somehow tranquil so many evenings.

Fun to see the seals, tortises and iguanas. The people were nice. Food was ok. Hotel ok. Not really that exciting

This beach is a ton of fun! The sea lions are everywhere and come up close to you while swimming (but if you go, please give them space and let them come to you! It's a shame to see people approach and annoy these animals). It's not a huge beach, and it does get crowded at sunset. The bar nearby is nice too!

It's the closest beach to town, just a comfortable walking distance on a paved street, right in front of the University. The beach is overtaken by sea lions, who are noisy and smelly but really lovely to watch as they slouch around on the beach or play in the water. Go ahead and get in the water with them, they can be territorial on land but very playful in the water!

This place has sand like flour and clear waters. Lots of turtles, as they use this beach to nest their eggs. Watch where you walk! Sea life is abundant and a great place to snorkel.
