Santa Catalina is one of several islands in the Loreto Bay National Park (Parque Nacional Bahia Loreto). The sea surrounding Santa Catalina has manta rays and several large pods of bottlenose, spinner and long-beaked common dolphins that visitors might see from the water. On shore, the island offers many opportunities for hiking amongst the impressive cactus varieties that can be found, as well as Gila Woodpeckers and other bird species that use the cacti for food or as a resting place.
