La Loberia, Salinas

4.6
#2 of 6 in Parks in Salinas
Meet the sea lions of La Loberia, a small beach where you can observe these animals in their natural habitat. The rocky beach marks the furthest northern point the South American sea lions venture. The colony is known as the "Loberia", meaning "sea wolves" in Spanish. Enjoy the scenic ocean view, watch the sea lions lounging on the rocks or swimming, and, in season, look out for a colony of humpback whales. A visit to La Loberia represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Salinas trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • Well worth the trip up the hill for the views. Wave crashing on rocks and in season easy to spot whales breaching.  more »
  • A place of shelter for the sea lions that travel from the Peruvian coast. From the viewpoint you can see sea lions, a bit far at a glance

  • On the navel base. We took a cab to la chocloteria and walked to Loberia. Nice path mostly follows beach. Lots of sea lions and volcanic shoreline. Very worth the visit.
  • It is wonderful seeing the seals in its natural environment. The place is safe and well signed. Must go.
  • Enjoy the ocean breeze. Good for walks
  • Excellent place to surf and watch some seals
  • Beautiful place where seawolf recovers strength to go and fight to be the alpha male.

Where to stay in Salinas

Most of the established, exclusive resorts, yacht clubs, and beachfront hotels can be found at the eastern end of the developed coastline. Mid-range hotels occupy the western section, tussling for space on the waterfront. In between the two, you'll find the more budget-friendly accommodations, with comfortable hotels and guesthouses on the side streets of a mainly residential neighborhood.
