Playa Mann, San Cristobal

4.1
#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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Puerto Baquerizo Moreno holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Playa Mann and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
