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.

  • Amazing place, the viewpoint of the tip allows to observe the force of the waves on the rocks. Sea Lions can be seen also in the distance. And depending on the time of year and luck, also whales. Recommendation: carry binoculars.

  • It smells bad but it has beautiful sunsets and it is very relaxing, the lobitos give the note of curiosity to the topic, they can not miss it.

  • 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.
