“Different kind of beach for me”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

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.

“Beautiful beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

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.

“Nice beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

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

“Spacious Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

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.
