Really stunning beaches. Great for snorkelling and walking too. We came on a boat trip here which was a bit of a swizz. You can get the water taxi from the harbour in playa blanca, or a taxi which can drop you near the beaches and you can walk the rest of the way. Not hard to find at all.

Walked to Casa Angelina at Playa Papagayo from Playa Blanca and was very pleasantly surprised by the food, service and general cleanliness. The view is stunning and the cafe is such a pleasant surprise. We were also very impressed with the bathrooms which even had scented candles. We will definitely return.

Wonderfully scenic bay set amidst a volcanic landscape. Very sheltered, fine white sand but desperately cold water Brrr. But worth a quick dip as there were plenty of fish who aren't scared of people to watch with a great number of different species.

Surprised and thoroughly enjoyed the beach and the views. Although not happy about the road And the fee for the use of the road but did find it is worth the money as thou cannot get the golden beach elsewhere in the island.

Playa de Papagayo is one of the many little secluded beaches you'll find just outside of Playa Blanca. You can take a 2 km hike along the waterside cliffs to get there or pay 3 Euros and drive into the park to the beach. There are 2 little beach bars/restaurants there to supply food and drinks (there is one toilet... More

Pristine beach, surreal landscape and unique. An oasis of peace reached by car, just 3 km from playa blanca. You pay a toll of 3 Euros. There are no bars or places to buy food or drink, so better provide before you arrive and stay in complete relax.
