About Salinas Grandes Day Beach Resort
The beach of Salinas Grandes is a less frequented beach with great waves making it ideal for surfing and boogie boarding. It is also joined by a calm estuary making it ideal for kayaking, stand up paddle board (SUP), tubing or a boat ride to enjoy the view of the vegetation and wild life. For those looking to relax we have a dip pool with an amazing view and hammocks. Great way to spend the day!

Salinas is a beautiful beach which is a little of the beat and track but if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of Leon and spend a day with hosts who really want to make your stay enjoyable, have access to kayaking, surfing, volleyball, boogey boarding as well as a cool place to hang out then Salinas Grandes Day Beach Resort is a must do. There are really nice chill out areas in the day resort with options to eat and drink as well as a good sized dip pool to relax in. The hosts Christian and Norah will go out of there way to customise your visit and make your stay as enjoyable as possible and the staff are just as hospitable.

We stumbled on this wonderful place by sheer good luck. We were looking to spend our last vacation day at the beach. Las Pinitas/Poneloya is crowded, and we are not surfers, and are of a certain age. We found the brochure for this place in our hotel lobby— what luck! This small day resort is located at the conjunction of the estuary and the ocean. The beach is wide, soft grey sand, and absolutely pristine. There are many seating areas, a dipping pool, and a bar with a small lunch menu (which we did not try). There are lots of activities available — kayaks, boogie boards, stand up paddle boards, boat tours of the nearby reserve. We had an awesome time swimming in the ocean and dipping in the pool. Clean restrooms and shower; lockers for your stuff. We were the only people there for the day, enjoying our own personal beach. A few locals come by for beers and a chin wag. The owners, a Nicaraguan-American/Quebecois couple are lovely and ready to help, explain, accommodate just about anything. They will pick you up from your hotel at the time of your choice and drop you back at the time of your choice. We stayed to watch the amazing sunset. It’s about an hour’s drive, maybe a bit more, from Leon. Once you get off the highway, it is a dirt road that reminded us of US roads to great, unfrequented campsites we have loved. This road is your friend : it keeps down the crowds! Go here: you will really enjoy the day. It’s a beautiful place with great hosts.

A ‚must-do‘ when in León, Nicaragua and you want to spend a day at the beach! Luckily the owners of our hotel in León recommended this place to us. We were looking for a way to get to the beach. So far, the only option we knew was public transportation to Las Peñitas. But they recommended Salinas Grandes Day Beach Resort and organized everything for us with a quick phone call. Nora, one of the owners, picked us up the next day at 9am to get to this beautiful place. Yes, it‘s a 50min ride. And yes, the road could be better. But having arrived, you‘ll get a quiet, clean (!), relaxing, active, healthy, funny... stay in this just recently opened resort. Especially I personally liked the fact, that Nora and Christian are doing a lot of voluntary work to make and keep the neighborhood clean! In the evening, Nora took us back to León. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to experience your great place and for sharing your stories - already looking forward to coming back one day!

Nice beach very comfortable, staff are happy and very helpful. The kayak trip up the estuary was quick and enjoyable. It is very quiet and a great place to kick back and enjoy the day. The road in is very long and hard to drive but if your willing to endure, it will be rewarding. The food and menu is quite limited, and the quality of the food could be improved. Rental equipment is in good shape and readily available. Thank you for a great day.

We are very happy that you had a great day! The dirt road does feel long even though it is only 14km. For 1st timers especially on a motorcycle, you have to dodge all of the potholes! But we hope that they will fix the road soon! fingers crossed! And yes, once you reach our corner of paradise...it is rewarding. This is what makes it a clean and peaceful beach worthy of the adventure! We like keeping our menu limited to fish, chicken and a vegan options. Keeping it simple and healthy makes everyone happy! You are very welcome and thank you for choosing Salinas Grandes Day Beach Resort to enjoy your beach day!

I visited with my family Salinas Grandes in Leon, and at the end of the road we met to Day Beach Resort, he’s owner Cristhian gave us a warmly welcoming, The stay was excellent and the food healthy and delicious, there are a lot of activities that you can do, but in this time we only lunched there and use the facilities, I recommend this place.
