Visited the beach yesterday. Lots of people camping and enjoying the day. Nice whitish sand on a nicely shaped beach. A few people were fishing with snorkels off the rocks. Rough road to get there in my small car.

Bring food and drinks and spend the whole day relaxing here. And get there early and you might have this stunning beach all for yourself, specially during the green season. Just be careful with the slippery, muddy road.

Beautiful place in Guanacaste to be disconected... no cars, no people. Quiet, peace, fresh air in your face and wonderful view.

A short drive from the resort Mareas and the kite schools along the dirt road this beach is a great place for sunset drinks or a swim in the ocean. Barely any other people and a spectacular place!

The most beautiful beach in the area. And a great snorkeling too, especially if you are able to swim to the rocky outcrop on the right, with zero sediment, and 50+ fish species, and even some hard coral! Everything changes with the huge tide (over 8 ft where we were there) so go twice, with the low tide, and then... More
