Punta Carola, San Cristobal
(4.4/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
Visit Punta Carola to meet the sea lions that call this beach home. Other residents you can see up close include pelicans, seagulls, lizards, and turtles. Get in the water for some excellent snorkeling or swimming. There isn't much shade so make sure you bring a hat and sunscreen. Due to the lack of amenities in this secluded area, packing your own food and water is recommended.
