El Salvador: Pacific Coast

Visit Us

El Salvador’s Pacific coastline is punctuated with small fishing communities and although tourism is in its infancy, there is a range of accommodation available from large, all inclusive resorts to small eco-conscious lodges. Beaches vary from soft white sandy bays to dark volcanic ones. Most of the coast is accessible by road and is generally less than 3hrs hours from the capital San Salvador.  

Rugged bays with big breaks are a haven for surfing enthusiasts and many international competitions have been held here. For nature enthusiasts there are 4 species of turtle which frequent the Pacific coast, in addition to an abundance of wading birds. That said, the majority of people who visit the coast just kick back, relax and enjoy juicy sea food washed down with a cold beer.

At the port town of Libertad you’ll see small fishing boats being hauled up to dockside for a traditional fisherman’s market - but get there early!

Most young El Salvadorians will be happy to show you how to surf if you are a beginner but we recommend using an instructor recognised by your hotel.
