The beaches and walk (Malecon) in Salinas are very popular with the people of Guayaquil and surroundings. As a resort it is lively and filled with bars, fairly good restaurants-happy people meandering. Some very nice apartment buildings are on the outskirts of Salinas and the beaches are cleaner and whiter. The sands of Salinas are not soft and white like... More

Before travelling I imagined Salinas different, I found a very nice place (and in some parts very such modern). We walked along its beatiful beach for some km and the temperature was perfect (not hot and not cold). We ate in one of a lot of cevicherias (in the market) and we found the seafood incredible. We spent very good... More

As we were there in the off-season period, the beach was only moderately crowded. However, walking down the malecon, there were many vendors hawking their wares. A good selection of restaurants and many tourist hotels.

This is a great beach for everyone, you just have to know when to go. I was there in May and June which was perfect for me. No crowds, quiet and peaceful, no humidity, cool temps, only used the A/C in condo for the noise effect sleep enhancement it gives me. Really great balcony weather where I spent a lot... More

Salinas beach is a nice sheltered beach in the middle of the Salinas strip, with tons of access to restaurants and shops, plus a multitude of hotels. You can rent a beach chair for the day, but be prepared to be accosted by the beach vendors selling everything from ice cream to temporary tattoos. (Including beer and chair and table... More

If you like varieties of beach types in a small area, you'll like Salinas beach. It's got regular sand, tiny pebbles, crushed seashells, and all in a small area.

This was definitely one of my favorite beaches in Santa Elena, and I visited about five. We were in a pretty secluded section which was nice as crowds can sometimes be overwhelming. There was ample area to relax on the beach, and the water was clean and pleasant. We stayed for hours as we were in no hurry to leave.

I love this beach. There is always something to do. I've been here three times and every time I have a blast. This time my friend, cousin and I went whale watching. The adventure was a little scary but breathtaking. The day was cloudy but the weather was still nice. The restaurants and bars that surround the beach are affordable... More
