Great beach!
Mar 2021
Playa de Olon isn't usually crowded and is very mellow. The beach is great for walking, swimming, surfing, and watching sunsets.

My Favourite Beach in Ecuador
Feb 2020
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.

When you look for a beach
Sep 2019
Having travelled from the Colombian to the Peruvian border we consider the 9 km beach from Olón to La Entrada as good as any other beach on the Pacific Coast in Ecuador. Safe and clean with several little villages where you can have a meal or something to drink.

Narrow Beach; Good for Swimming
Aug 2019
Olon's beach goes about 8km north, and parts disappear at high tide. Good for swimming and beginner surfing.

Quiet but close to the party area
Apr 2019 • Friends
Olon is a quiet little town very close to Montañita. Was the perfect spot for enjoying the sea side away from the loud party town. Cute little restaurants and cafe populate Olon making this town a good alternative. Taxi from and to Montañita only cost $1.5

Olon is a beautiful spot
Feb 2019
We took a #13 bus from Salinas to the Terminal in Santa Elena for .30 cents. From there we tok a blue bus to Olon for 1.80 for us both. It was close to the coast most of the time and took aboyt 1 1/2 hours. The town is funky but cute. The beach is long and not so commercial. There was a strect of umbrellas and chair to rent but there was also just plain beach to sit on. The water is shallow and you need to walk a ways out. There were many food establishments beachside constructed of bamboo and thatch. We stopped at 1 and had ceviche and rice with conch. Huge servings.

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.
