  • Some time ago that we were not in the reserve and it was pleasantly surprised the improved which was, totally uncluttered and much cleaner than before (although there are still bottles and some other waste).

  • The reservation is to the southern breakwater road, it is no big deal to visit. Bring water if you want to go walking.

  • Sea lions are there in their island and podes see lowering the car or staying in it, I love always go with my granddaughter, a wiring there is what prevents you from passing, is a sibling family outing with so much of our nature, I recommend it , is located on the North breakwater of the port so the boats pass through there also and is very cute!

  • Genial
  • It is a shame that this place is called reserve... It is very sloppy and dirty. Lattices are all broken, there's dogs running in where are the wolves, the place is all dirty. The only thing I saw positive, is that there is lot of security, every one hundred meters you have a prefect. They should improve the place, when I was a girl was always with my family, and it was a beautiful place.

  • Beautiful sea lions, great fun. Once again turns to notice the lack of care of the people who attend.

  • I love this place, only that so becomes one that other garbage to the beach and would be great to clean it from time to time. But I also think something beautiful ❤❤❤

  • A classic of "happy city". You don't have much infrastructure, but if they roam the port... it is a cute little walk that sum. And it is free.
