The water was very warm. Loved the big waves and watching the surfers. Sand was dark and lots of stones. Maybe from volcanoes. Again the waves were awesome.

In July, this beach was almost empty during the week. On weekends it was more crowded, but it's a huge beach so it wasn't a problem. It is a very rocky beach, though, so you have to look for a sandy spot to go in the water unless you have very tough feet. This isn't really a great beach for swimming, though, as there are rip currents and rough waves. Go to Playa Herradura for safer swimming.

Rustic compared to others we had been to in Costa Rica. Playas del coco and hermosa were a tad cleaner.

The beach was nice because it had depth, at least 75 yards of beach. Everyone was able to have their own space. Very enjoyable to sit around have imperials.

Could listen to the surf all day, and all night. Sand is smooth as glass. Awesome bars along the beach.
