Diving and Snorkeling, Galápagos Islands: 43 reviews and 81 photos
Another beautiful spot and a place to snorkel for free providing you have gear is Concha Perla. This majestic little semicircular bay is reached by a boardwalk path at the end of town close to the docks from which you'll emerge on a wooden deck. So, don't go expecting a beach as there isn't one but there is some very clear water which is teaming with marine life from schools of colorful fish, to marine turtles and if you're lucky sea lions. You can head down a few rocky tributaries if you're adventurous and even head right into the bay. I went out briefly as I hadn't seen any turtles or sea lions and I knew there was a sea lion out that way as I'd seen him from the path on the way into the snorkeling area. I didn't stay out long as the water was quite a bit colder and I didn't want to get hit by a boat since I didn't have a dive flag!
Directions: This great little spot is on a spur off the main road into town and very close to the docks of Puerto Villamil on Isabella.
