You get to see sea lions! What more can I say? A nice spot to go with family. We saw sea lions and marine turtles.

We took a cab, it is a long walk from the main military gate, don't forget your passport. The sea lions, about 30 were hard to see & not too active today! Bring binoculars if you have them

If you'd like to see fat, happy sea lions, then this is the place to go. They love climbing up on the rocks dancing and jumping into the gorgeous clearwater of the Pacific Ocean.

We went to the Loberi'a while on a family vacation. If you are into nature and seeing things in their natural habitat then go here. There is a colony of sea lions that inhabit the rock there.
