Beach club? Secure beach parking

Hi everyone,

We are renting a house & traveling with 2 young kids.

Is there a beach club around the Ballena park beaches? Can I get directions on how to get there?

I'm mainly looking for a secure parking area near a beach that is good for small children. I don't mind paying a fee to park or buying lunch there.

Villa Leonor at Ballena Beach club is what you are looking for. They offer dinner Wednesday to Monday (Closed Tuesday) need to buy lunch or dinner the food is excellent in particular the Ahi Tuna, prices very reasonable and private access to the Marino Ballena Beach. About 7 km South of Uvita going to Ojochal, KM Marker 170km just after Hotel Cristal Ballena have a sign "Villa Leonor" at entrance. They have drinks, shower and secure parking.

Another option is Playa Ventanas beach just south of this place off the highway, it has caves you can explore with the kids at low tide and look for Drakes treasure. There is a secure parking at a private house with big metal gates there is a fee. Turn off the highway at Playa Ventanas sign (after Playa Piñuelas before Ojochal) folow dirt road until it comes to an end and there is a large gate on the right, go in.
