  • Worth separate one day to see the sunset from this place. It's beautiful, with the boats and bars by the sea.

  • Like all port, is always full of boats and small yachts. Many gulls and frigate birds that stay all the time flying over the site. Very visited by adults and children. George.

  • Un lugar con vistas fantásticas! Beautiful views abound. You'll find small shops selling fresh caught fish, trinkets, and the like along the port. You'll see sea lions begging for fish. If you wait until sunrise or sunset, you'll see a real treat!
  • Great place for a walk. Check expensive boats and local fishermen. You can fish in specific places. Places to buy fresh food and restaurants. Recommended.
