A beach made of shells

go further down where the native costa ricas are and enjoy a beach made purely of sea shells and the clearest blue water. Look for the fish near the rocks

Playa Conchal is a one mile stretch of beach, approx west to east. The beach entrance to the Westin Golf Resort is on the east side, and past the eastern edge of the beach is the small village of Brasilito. The beach has 3 parts: a rocky boundary on the east with some rocks submerged in the water, a shell... More

I sought this beach out after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. While it is very pretty, read my experience below so you don't get screwed over by the conchal venders. Before I go into my experience, I want to note that I am a very cautious traveler. I usually do a ton of research before booking tours and I don't... More

We loved everything about this resort. The only downside was there was an issue with the Wifi, but once reported the issue was addressed, and charges were removed.

This is rated one of the best beaches in Costa Rica and that's saying something. I agree. The crushed and tumbled shells, white sand and blue water are wonderful. I have been there many times and always love it. Nice shadey trees along the beach too. You can fish, snorkel, walk, swim, bird watch, and more. Very beautiful.

Amazing and unforgettable experience you can't get anywhere else by the price you pay for 1 hour professional massage! My massage lady's name was Damaris from Sea Escape. Her powerful hands and attention to the details impressed me. She speaks English good enough to understand my health concerns and what areas I wanted her to focus on. She listened and... More

First let me say I am not among those reviewers who rate everything as the best ever. This place however was really great. My family loved this beach so much we went three times. Pull in and the parking attendant will direct you to a spot. Pay him a buck or so and he will keep an eye on your... More
