Come enjoy the beach where Survivor Nicaragua was filmed in 2010. We have 3km of virgin white sand beaches. Great surfing, swimming, tide pooling, and we have horses ready to run you up and down the sand. Shuttles from town (SJDS) are available, and we have a beach bar/restaurant and hotel if you want to spend some quality time relaxing on the beach...

Absolutely beautiful, it is a seclude beach almost desert, has a nice restaurant and a small hotel. The view is amazing! It is a little expensive, it a beach to relax and surf.

I am seven years old. My dad and I had a good time on the beach. The food was ok. Service was poor. Good swimming and surfing beach. No rip tide and the waves were perfect for me.

If you are looking for an incredibly quiet and secluded place to learn how to surf, this is your place. This is not what we had in mind but that doesn't mean it was bad. There were very few people, probably less than ten when...More

For 10 dollars or less you can expend the day in a wonderful wide open beach in the pacific coast of south Nicaragua. With luck you can get a hammock and seats. But if you don't get there early better bring your own seats. Drinks...More

great beach and the atmosphere to kick back and relax was awesome. the food was good, and even though there were lots of people, you had space.

Great beach, but you have to pay to get in. That being said, it is totally worth it. A great wonderful natural place, safe, and with easy parking. It is near SJDS, which makes it more touristy. Try to explore Popoyo, which is much more...More

This beach charges an admission of 3 dollars per person unlike most of the beaches which are free. However, it is worth it. The beach is very large and was us crowded. I was there with a family group of 7 people and because we...More
