Tamarindo beach is beautiful and perfect for swimming and surfing. Some areas are rocky but most of the beach is great.

“Super clean and great for surfing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

We came in December and the surf was super clean. Even though the swell was small, it makes for really fun surfing. Watch the crowds though, there is no flag area for swimmers, so swimmers and surfers are mixed up.
