    The Santa Elena Peninsula is on the Pacific Coast of Ecuador. This attractive piece of land stretches for 30 km and is well known for its fabulous beaches. You can relax and look forward to surfing, sunbathing and swimming in the gorgeous waters off the peninsula. There are many more activities, such as sport fishing and other water sports, to keep you busy when you stay here. Santa Elena Peninsula also has several fishing villages, but the main tourist focus here is certainly the beach culture. The best surfing area on Santa Elena Peninsula is off the beach of Montañita, a small fishing village. Surfers go to the Point – La Punta de Montañita. Some of the best safe swimming areas, however, are in Salinas. There are large stretches of salt flats here, and the Salinas Yacht Club is a place to have a drink and socialize. Try to time your arrival for the National Surf Competition.
