The entry is €3 per car regardless of how many passengers in it. There is also walking, hiking and mountain biking trails in the... More

A little too busy for me and with no shade you need to be careful. We stayed for a couple of hours and then went to eat in the restaurants overlooking the beach. Fab views and very relaxing. Sea is crystal clear and sand clean albeit very hot to walk on after about 1300 hrs. Drive to the beach is... More

If you are accustomed to the sun the thee beaches are great! No shade, but plenty of sand. No facilities, one food outlet (farthest beach).

This beach is beautiful with its clean sand and clear water but awfully busy , I would recommend going around 8:30 am or 9 until 11am as it starts to get busy then you have people sitting virtually on top of you , By doing this you also avoid paying an entrance fee because it is so early.

beautiful beach, light coloured sand rather then the black sand at our resort, rocky lava on the cliffs, pristine clean blue water

There are essentially 8 beaches in the Papagayo area to the west of Playa Blanca, although three of them are very small inlets: Caleton del Cobre and Caleton de San Marcial between Playa Mujeres and Playa de la Cruz (aka Playa del Pozo); and Playa de la Cera between Playa de la Cruz and Playa del Papagayo. All of these... More

This beach or rather a number of connected baches sits to the east of Playa Blanca. Not the easiest access as its a 20m in walk fromt he edge of town but well worth the effort!

It is a bit difficoult to get there, you can only drive on a dirt road but once you are there you wont regret it. The place is ideal for swimming and snorkeling. Be avare... More

The beach is beautiful and sandy in most places although some rocks rise up from the sand in places and also at bout ends. The water is very clear and refreshing to swim in but not too cold. These is no shade on the... More

The beach is small, but there are other beaches near by. The pull of the water current is very strong. There is a cafe near by, but no other facilities. It is quite a drive from any nearby accommodation (10-20 minutes). I suggest going there by a boat which you can take from any port near your accomodation. That way,... More
