The best beach massage deal in Playa Conchal. $20 for a 1 hour massage. Jenny is the best deal with a great personality!

The best massage I have ever had was on Playa Conchal with Jenny. $20.00 for an hour. Please visit Jenny at Playa Conchal under the red canopy.

This is one of the only white (or nearly so) in Costa Rica. The majority are volcanic in origin and are dark. There are jet skies and other things to rent on the beach. You can even drive your car on the beach, behind the grove of trees along the beach. Perfect spot.

Calm bay waters made swimming easy. Warm and comfortable. Watch out for locals who can access all public beaches but they were all friendly even to my kids

Beautiful beach! No waves, but a great place to relax once you make it past the vendors. If you want waves go to Tamarindo

We loved Playa Conchal and the Westin resort. It was a beautiful setting. We arranged tours and transfers through a wonderful agency called Coatitours and worked closely with Elsy Bonilla who was incredibly reliable and service oriented

Aesthetically the beach is very pretty, yes but it's SO dangerous! You can't go into the water past your knees or the ocean with eat you up and spit you back out. There is no place to sun bathe b/c the waves crash all the way up to the roads. Basically all you can do is arrive early (around 10... More
