I went with a couple of friends to this beach, it's just great, white sand great views, long stretch of beach, water was amazing, it's very good for surfing, but be careful with the tide it can surprise you. Just a beautiful place, love it

Love this beach. It's very long and great for walking and surfin. It can get very hot so best to get out early or later in the day.

Best trip ever to this amazing little place. Very quiet in October but it was still super hot. The locals are super friendly. Beach Dog and La Luna restaurants are must visit places. Nosara Family Surf is the place to book your lessons, excursions and even rental home from. We'll be back!

Nice big sandy beach with great little restaurants through out the dirt roads and jungle close by. Surf is good for beginners but lots of good surfers out there too.

Still the BEST beach in the area. It has grown up in the last 5 years so don't comeback expecting the beach you first saw in the early / mid 2000's. The beach is still pristine and there's all wise a place for you and your towel.

The beach was very nice, quiet, the waves were a lot of fun. Sand was clear and soft, and the landscape was beautiful.

Loved our stay here, beautiful beaches. Water is a bit muddy. The surf is awesome, very easy and mellow waves. Very easy to learn on. Lots of surf schools offering lessons.

I researched on where to learn how to surf in Costa Rica, and I’m glad I chose this place for my friend and I. Really liked that it wasn’t as touristy as Manuel Antonio but had nice hotels and restaurants here. It gets dark at night so bring a flashlight. People are nice and friendly. It was a nice place...

It's such a luxury having the beach house nearby. There are relatively few people on this gorgeous expansive beautiful...just sand, water and endless sky.
