A large rock formation in front of the lagoon keeps the waters here especially calm, making this area great for children and those new to snorkeling. The clear water makes it easy to see the marine life such as sea lions, sharks, many types of fish, turtles, and more.

  • Reach Pearl shell, is walking to the port of Isabella, since the city is approx. 1 km away, and there after going through a short path, you reach a platform from where you can start an interesting snorkel, you can see quite a few fish and if you got lucky maybe some iguana or fur, although generally are on the trail at rest in the Sun. You can find some interesting schools and many fish. This visit is free

  • Concha de Perla is a lovely little spot close to town for a swim and a snorkel - it's not the best, you'll only see a few fish and possibly turtles, but with the proximity to town it's great if you just fancy a swim and a cool off. Of course, it also costs nothing, so that's good!!
  • This is a good free place. A boardwalk brings you down to the ocean where you will likely step over iguanas and seals. You can snorkel in the water but I'd highly recommend having a body suit as it's cold.
  • Great to cool down on a hot day, nice walk through the trees to get there.
  • a little nice place for snorkeling not much more
  • Fantastic
