SALINAS

The city is considered one of the most important, popular and visited in the country. Its appeal is due to its beautiful beaches, top hotels, clubs, bars, discos and other sporting and cultural attractions for tourism.

Among these attractions it is worth mentioning:

  • Chipipe Beach: It is the widest, best known and safest beach of the area. The tranquil blue sea, the birds and tall buildings along the beach convey a an inviting landscape that stretches along ten blocks, with the Salinas Yacht Club at one end and the Navy Base at the other.
  • San Lorenzo Beach: At the other end of the city, this beach features big waves, hence it is an attraction for surf lovers.
  • "Mar Bravo" (Wild sea beach): Located on the other side of the peninsula (to windward when considering the most common winds) the waves are stronger and not many tourists venture to swim on them. The sunsets, however, are beautiful and gather many visitors every evening.
  • "La Chocolatera" (the Chocolate machine): Located in the Navy Base, it is the west most point of the country. Its name derives from the way waves crash against the caves, creating foam and vapour as if it was a chocolate cup. It hosts a colony sea lions and a lighthouse.
  • Ecuasal salt pools: They are wells where salt has been accumulating for years. These wells give the name to the city: 'Sal' in Spanish means salt, and 'Salinas' is the name of the place where salt is found.
  • Salinas 21st century Museum: Located in the corner of Malecón and 'Guayas y Quil' Streets, it is known as “The Great Peninsula Museum”. The Archeology Room features a complete show of the ancient cultures that were settled in before colonization.
