Quiet beach with tranquil surf... good for kids
Jun. 2021
A few vendors near the entrances. Nice view from a beach-side cliff. Sand is actually tiny crushed seashells. Nice photo spots

Breathtaking beach
May 2021 • Couples
Sunsets were are favorite part here. Located in between mountains when the sun falls it makes for beautiful photos. Very relaxing and pretty. They have horseback riding picnic areas and other vendors on the beach if you need gifts.

Great Shell Beach
May 2021
A pretty beach to walk on, it is VERY shelly but great views for the sunset! People try to sell you things, as it’s public, but the hotel security helps keep things calm.

Beautiful beach with a tourist vibe
Mar. 2021 • Couples
Playa Conchal is not a very long beach and it's set in a curved harbor. The water is very clear and the entire beach is made of sea shells which is beautiful. There are many people on the beach who will try and sell you things, some which is nice but you can also politely decline.
The women offering massages in front of the beach are actually very nice and do a great job, especially for a good price. There was a woman there named Lady who was especially good and I recommend her.

A relaxing day at the beach
Feb. 2021 • Couples
We went to Playa Conchal, the sand is not smooth because of the shells, but it was good. You just have to be careful when you walk. Some people were snorkeling. Eric help us with setting a tent, the chairs and the food, which was very good. The piña colada is refreshing but it does not have so much liquor. I got a massage on the beach and it was great it cost $20. I will say that this is not wheelchair accesible, because you have to park and then walk a little less than a mile on the sand and up and down a small mountain. It’s not hard at all and if you have things to carry, there are locals that will bring them to you for a small fee. You need to bring cash. There is a bathroom but you have to pay to use it.

Great Couples Trip
Feb. 2021 • Couples
We had a great time at this beach resort. The staff are very friendly and the resort is beautiful. The pool and beach areas are beautiful. We met Erik G on the beach and he set us up for a river trip and horse back ride on the beach. Wound highly recommend this gem in Costa Rica and we will come back!

Best beach seen so far in Costa Rica
Dec. 2020 • Couples
The whitest beach we saw, Costa Rica has normally black sand beaches for obvious reasons! Get up early and enjoy a morning walk or jogg!

Massage on beach
Dec. 2020 • Couples
Beautiful beach but want to mention Sophia’s massages on the beach (near Westin entrance). Wow! I’m from NYC and have had some great massages but she takes the cake. Incredibly nice and does an amazing massage (deep tissue, more relaxing, etc). My boyfriend and I went back the next morning! Very clean - saw her cleaning in between customers- and outside so felt very safe. Gracias!
