Casa Beach/Children's Pool
This beach was originally intended as a protected swimming area for kids, but in the last 10 years or so seals have been coming here to swim and sunbathe and they have become a tourist attraction. In 1997, the beach was closed to swimmers because of high levels of animal waste (seal poop). The beach was reopened to swimmers in 2004 because people complained of not having access to the beach, and still today swimming is not advised because of the high levels of bacteria. There is a wonderful seawall (on the right of the photo) that was built to shelter the beach and also for people to walk out on to enjoy the view.
