La Chocolatera, Salinas
(4.5/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Walk the paved path along the ocean at La Chocolatera, taking in the calm sea breeze and jagged rocky coastline. Located on a military base, the area has allowed public access only since 2015. Explore the trail between two lookout points with a bicycle tour to get the most out of this picturesque coastline and its panoramic views. Keep an eye out for sea lions resting on the rocks not too far out from shore; bring binoculars if you can. Using our custom trip planner, Salinas attractions like La Chocolatera can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
