La Loberia, Salinas

(4.5/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • Within the base military is is this beach, beside the rock where is together them wolves defeated that together force to return to their group. Not there is much infrastructure and the sun beats strong, but is worth it penalty stay is a time. It is not a beach for bathing large sea but to a cooled since the current is very strong.
