Walk the paved path along the ocean at La Chocolatera, taking in the calm sea breeze and jagged rocky coastline. Located on a military base, the area has allowed public access only since 2015. Explore the trail between two lookout points with a bicycle tour to get the most out of this picturesque coastline and its panoramic views. Keep an eye out for sea lions resting on the rocks not too far out from shore; bring binoculars if you can.

You can see the waves breaking against the rocks and it has an amazing view of the sea. Ideal to go to see the sun fall, take pictures, or just take a walk. Highly recommended for nature lovers.
If you are ever in Salinas, Ecuador go here. The view is amazing and you get to see some history since it's inside a military base. Plus it's free. Also you get to see some really crazy waves and this is definitely a photo spot. 🤘. One more thing bring a jacket/sweater because those waves are crazy for a reason.
Beautiful sunsets on the water and crashing waves! Took a bike ride here, what an absolutely serene view. if you are lucky you can see some sea life on the shore!
