Playa de Chipipe, Salinas
(4.5/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy a pristine beach with gently sloping white sand and crystal blue water at Playa de Chipipe, truly encapsulating the feeling of a paradise beach. The sand stretches out wide giving you enough room to feel comfortable even in peak season. The tranquil flat water makes the beach ideal for water sports like sailing, jet skiing, parasailing, and tube rides. Pick up some chifle, a fried plantain snack, from one of the food vendors and stroll among the palm trees and luxury apartment buildings that overlook the water. Watch out for pelicans ducking under the water hoping to catch some fish.

  • The beach is beautiful but I recommend going from April to January. And in season only from Monday to Friday. Weekend of season is filled with evil and becomes dirty. Ideal for children because the sea is not dangerous.

  • Good beach, gets crowded, make sure you rent the "carpa" because the sun can be overwhelming throughout the afternoon even until later noon. The water is calm and great for the little ones.
