La Loberia, Salinas

(4.4/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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. For La Loberia and beyond, use our Salinas vacation route planner to get the most from your Salinas vacation.

  • It is a very nice and safe walk between La Granja and La Lobería. It has a viewpoint from where you can see sea lions recovering from battles that have been in the South. Is can feel the force of the Sea against the rocks, there are beaches beautiful for rest and the walk is very nice.

  • We took a cab, it is a long walk from the main military gate, don't forget your passport. The sea lions, about 30 were hard to see & not too active today! Bring binoculars if you have them
