Wind was blowing a good Westerly when we were in San Carlos, so went to Frenchies and as usual it was calm at the waters edge... Could see white caps out past the point but had a great afternoon swimming and diving in the cove... Not one to miss...

Avoid entering where the big slippery rocks are. I saw multiple puffer fish, sea urchins, star fish, and many other fish.

Frenchie's and Lalo's coves are great spots on weekends or weekdays. Lalo's is on your right and Frenchie's on the left as you approach the beaches. The sandy road is fine unless you go too far onto Frenchie's beach. The snorkeling is okay in Lalo's Cove, with the best at either end. Local families come here to swim, bbq and... More
