La Loberia, Salinas

4.5
#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.

    He had never been to the seal colony before, always concentrating on the most famous chocolate maker. However go has been an interesting surprise: not going to take a long time (half an hour is already almost over) but will be able to see a beautiful colony of sea lions. If you have a little time to spare, a visit is worthwhile. I remember that to enter this area they have to enter the military zone.

    You can see the retired sea lions coming in search of tranquility on this side of the Ocean Pacific. Nice view and fresh air.

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.
