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.
