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

While it was a typical overcast July day in Salinas, The adventure was very memorable of getting on a nice 60 foot boat with an excellent observation deck to watch the running of the large humpback whales of Antarctica pass through the town of Salinas to spawn. The trip from the beach to the whale site only took a few... More

Everyone in Ecuador knows and goes to Salinas. It is lined with cool restaurants and condos. I last visited over new years and had an experience like I have never had. They build fires on the beach and shoot fireworks from multiple locations. This was the best new years ever and I cannot wait to go back. Great food, nice... More
