The ocean in Salchi Bay is an open ocean and as such its character depend. on the weather. Generally between November and March waves are calm and the ocean is well swimable. In the other months of the year it can be stronger. We always recommend to be an experienced swimmer to swim at Salchi beach. Other beaches in walking distance nearby are calmer and ideal for children.

Casa Mauna has been founded by us, Victoria and Ewen. We’re a Mexican German couple and fell in love with Salchi on our very first visit. It took us two years of planning and one year of construction to complete our vision. We constructed during the lockdown of Covid in 2020 and opened by of October of 2020 at the end of our available funds. We were lucky to have been able to flourish since and are happy to offer our guests a great experience. We’re very grateful for all the posivite reviews we received and the guests we got to know.

At Casa Mauna we’re strongly aware of our social responsability. When we opened Casa Mauna we were the first to implement a 40 hours work week with two days a week off. Vastly improving over the previous 70+ hours work week with 1 day a week off common in the area. Though we were reducing working hours we were able to increase salaries even above the average common in the area. This means our staff receives an average hourly wage of more than double compared to other companies in the area. Additionally we offer more vacations than any other company in the area. We also provide social security, transportation, beverages and food to all our staff. It’s thanks to these efforts that we’re able to maintain no staff fluctuation. We’re very thankful to all of our staff members and it’s thanks to the whole team that we’re able to offer such a great service.
