Lovely and clean, lots of space to spread out and walk. Rocky areas great for rock pooling and snorkelling around

Flamingo beach is one of the prettiest beaches in Costa Rica. We enjoyed walking the beach and watching the sunset. It was the perfect way to end our day.

If you haven't seen the sunset from playa flamingo your missing out. The beach itself is spotless, close to restaurants and shopping.

This is a wonderful beach to hit up with a cooler filled with drinks and nibbles. Not a lot of places to eat off the beach like in Tamarindo. The ocean here is a little calmer with fewer reefs and rocks so it makes for...More

Great beach to suntan or swim. Close to our hotel and all the locals are very friendly. The beach is about a mile long and it is great to walk from end to end.

The water is clear and nice but at very high tide can be dangerous. Go down the beach towards the south end for the safest swimming

The Playa Flamingo area is beautiful from the higher elevations...the sunsets were amazing. This area is much more laid back than the neighboring Tamarindo. However, it is a short drive if you need or desire a more social and active environment.

If you are looking for a quiet beach to take long walks on then you will love this one. It's not crowded with tourists and seems to be a favorite of the locals on the weekend. There is plenty of shade trees available for those...More

Take a drive down to Tamarindo. It's a fun surfer town with lots of little shops and beachside restaurants. There are several nice beaches along the coast that are worth checking out as well, such as Playa Conchal or Playa... More
