  • If you are training swimming, this is a beach for you, cause there are no waves. Note that I cane here during off season so not many people were here in October.  more »
  • The truth was a tremendous discovery this place. Las salinas beach is a beautiful blend of tranquility, relaxation and entertainment guaranteed. We have a large number of experiences together, from whale watching, Jet Ski rental, a good and beautiful beach, very good food, and very... very convenient prices in one place. Ideal for families, we went with teenage girls and the place lends itself to spend very pleasant moments.

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.
