Playa Mann, San Cristobal

4.2
#5 of 16 in Outdoors in San Cristobal
One of the few coastal spots on Galapagos not devoted to conserving wildlife, Playa Mann is lapped by crystalline waters, ideal for observing marine life. If you like a bit of adventure, rent surfing gear from one of the kiosk on the sand and try tackling the waves. The beach is slightly rocky, so be sure to take appropriate footwear and approach the sea with caution. If you choose to snorkel, try to stay near the shore, where legions of colorful tropical fish can be observed easily.

  • The beach is clean, close to Center, road to the cerro Tijeretas, the cost of the taxy if you want to go walking should not exceed $1.5, but is a good choice to walk. It has jobs chuzos, corn, chicken on stick, and mature cheese, with a cost of $2.5. Nearby there are shops, and Kayak rentals. You can snorkel, relax, swim with sea lions, the place to watch the sunset, although when I went the sky was cloudy. It has free showers, and a small open cabin. Sure, people leave their bags while they swim. They also know to go surfing when the sea is able for that activity. EYE: Wear Detan or repellent to the GNATS (there are some very hard-biting)
