  • 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.
