Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • Chipipe beach is truly the best of salinas: Although San Lorenzo beach is the most famous and frequented, also why is full of restaurants and people so if they seek tranquility could be a bit annoying. Chipipe, on the other hand, is frequented but far away from the noise of the center of Salinas, and at the same time it has a sea that is quiet, as it is generally in the peninsula of Santa Elena, but not so quiet as in San Lorenzo, so it is a beach suitable for children and young people. Although the malecon is a little away have however a certain number of nearby restaurants, usually very well, so they will be able to have a nice afternoon of beach. Advised!

  • It must be the best beach of Salinas... There are no waves, is not full of street vendors and no doubt is like being in a pool by the tranquility of its waters. I do not recommend going in July since it is always cloudy and not enjoying 100% Beach, but still allows to enjoy it.

  • Very messy and generates distrust. It is nice but is not a safe beach, have very abandoned and not feel like staying long time there.

Where to stay in Salinas

Most of the established, exclusive resorts, yacht clubs, and beachfront hotels can be found at the eastern end of the developed coastline. Mid-range hotels occupy the western section, tussling for space on the waterfront. In between the two, you'll find the more budget-friendly accommodations, with comfortable hotels and guesthouses on the side streets of a mainly residential neighborhood.
