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!

It is a very wide beach, with lifeguards. The sea is a bit brave. There are people who rent small tents between $ 3 and $ 5 for the whole day. There is also where to eat at a good price. We were charged $...More

You can get a taxi or local bus from downtown salinas to santa elena bus station, and then take the bus to Olon, just to be sure and answer your whole question.
