This beach is cleaner than most I've been to. The cabanitas, and there are many, offer great breakfasts and fresh seafood.

Plenty of sun umbrellas and chair to rent at a decent price. There are vendors that walk the beach selling jewellry, food, hats, sand toys, etc...but they are polite.

Great place to watch the sunsets.

Nice town, slow moving, laidback with a great beach. The friendly peaple and simles make everyday great. Food and sevices over all are good. Street food every night. Town is clean and streets are more than safe.

We loved that the beach was wide and long and VERY clean. It was great to be able to just walk as far as we wanted. Definitely recommend it for people who love a good but uncrowned beach.

This beach has everything Montanita has, but less. Less people, vendors (but less), places to eat (just a few), cocktail stands (but less), surfers (less traffic). Less stress.
My family loves it here!

Olon's beach goes about 8km north, and parts disappear at high tide. Good for swimming and beginner surfing.

I like to go to this beach because it is beautiful, more than everything is to be at night with my family watching the stars.
For me it is the best beach to rest in family, relax and enjoy the beautiful sunset.
Its proximity to Montañita makes it the ideal place to enjoy the beach and stay in a quiet seaside resort, and when you are looking for spree, the best fun center you go to is Montañita.
Also its proximity to Chongón Colonche allows visitors to enjoy ecotourism excursions.
Olon is located in the canton of Santa Elena 6 km from Manglaralto in the Olon Commune.
Olon beach is one of the most extensive of the Ecuadorian coast, where you can do some activities such as: sport fishing, water skiing, water sports, soccer, beach tennis or volleyball, as well as skillful catchers of the famous flying saucer called frisbee.
The climate is very pleasant for the people who visit it and they look for a place of calm and clean beach away from the city and also to delight with the delights that the sea offers us.

This beach is great and clean and has been kept this way thanks to the organization of land owners and the local comune. Its not edgy as montanita is and is very family friendly. Maybe the only downside is that the residents, especially the expatriots are a little uptight.

It is located 195 kilometers from the city of Guayaquil in the coastal area of the province of Santa Elena and about three minutes from Montañita, a place that is well known nationally and internationally . Here, people from around the country and from foreign countries live, Olon Beach is well known for the beautiful sunsets that gives the Ecuadorian coast to relax with family or friends
If you are in Montañita recommend you also visit this part of the Ecuadorian coast as Olon where you can also enjoy good weather, entertainment center including karaoke, restaurants, it is an ideal destination for those seeking a fun atmosphere place but also relaxation, people like to come to this place because they can hike into the mountains . Catholics can visit the "Santuario de Olon" which also give them a view of all the beautiful scenery of Olon.

Olon is a beach located in the province of Santa Elena, Ecuador is in the so-called " ruta del Sol " . This beach has a dark-colored sand with a moderate swell, is perfect to practice some water sports like surfing and windsurfing, it has a very pleasant climate for tourists seeking a quiet place away from the city. You can also enjoy the beauty of the Santuario Blanca Estrella de la Mar which is a stone construction shaped like a boat from the top of a large crag. In my opinion Olon is ideal for relaxing on the sand and enjoying the sea with family and friends, the tranquility and cleanliness of the beach make you forget the concerns, allowing to have a real vacation.

Here you can visit the many towns both north and south on the coast, rent dirt bikes and head inland throughout the mountains and rivers, hang out in Montanita and enjoy the nightlife that it is so ever famous for! The best part about Olon is that you are literally 2 minutes by taxi to the bustling Montanita, yet have a beautiful and quaint town to relax, enjoy the quieter beach life, softer and less populated waves, and have quiet nights with the locals and other foreigners that are passing time in the local restaurants and pubs. The tranquility of this town and the proximity to all other local attractions really makes Olon the hub of everything you will want and need while on the coast or when looking for a base to start your Ecuadorian adventures!
