Wonders of Salinas Beach Ecuador - January 2013
It's high season on the beaches of Ecuador. Salinas was packed with Ecuadorian families mostly and few foreigners. By noon time the tide comes in all the way up to the rocks and doesn't go back out until around 5pm or so in the evening. San Lorenzo beach in Salinas is not very wide so it really gets packed with people, and when the tide starts coming in everyone slowly moves their beach umbrellas a little bit closer to the wall and the beaches become more and more packed.
A good time to enjoy the beach this time of year is walking the whole beach early in the morning when the tide is out; it is a very enjoyable walk and is good exercise. Walking from one end to the other takes about 30 minutes. Chipipe beach is a much wider beach but during high season it too gets packed. However, your chances of finding a spot on the beach to lay down your beach towel and get some sun are much better on Chipipe beach.
