La Loberia, San Cristobal

(4.7/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Visit a stretch of coast well known for its resident sea lions at La Loberia. On this sandy beach animals organize into colonies, with around 30 females and their cubs surrounding the dominant male of the group. Watch the way they interact and listen to the inimitable noises they make, making sure to stay back and heed the advice of the wardens--sea lions tend to be very territorial. Other than the main residents, you'll find yellow warbles, frigate birds, and plenty of species of finch, as well as large marine iguanas. Plan your La Loberia visit and explore what else you can see and do in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno using our Puerto Baquerizo Moreno trip builder.

Beach takes its name by the presence of wolves, they migrated to the beaches of the Center surely by the presence of the airport in its proximity, but also it is a beautiful place to visit.
