Ayangue, Ecuador – Olón to Ayangue

The picturesque "Horse-shoe" Bay of Ayangue, with tranquil waters and a sandy beach, is lined with Seafood Restaurants.

Very popular with Ecuadorians, the small bay is especially busy in Weekends and Holidays. On weekdays, you can mostly enjoy the white beach for yourself! 

The water is calm and exceptionally warm, with no currents, which makes it very safe and kid friendly. There are a few more activities in Ayangue that are worth mentioning, see for example this Page on TripAdvisor!

It's a small trip from Olón and can easily be combined with a visit to nearby Valdivia and/or the Hammock Shops in Libertador Bolivar!


At just 25 minutes from Olón (~$15 by taxi), Olón is the ideal place to stay when exploring the Ecuadorian Coast and visiting Diving and Snorkeling spots like Ayangue, Salinas, Los Frailes, Isla de la Plata and more!

The town of Ayangue also has one of the nicest Diving Spots on the Ecuador Coast!
Submerged Statues attract fish and other marine life, ideal for snorkeling and Diving. Local Tour Agencies offer affordable diving classes and trips.
