The natural beaches are either accessed by foot by walking up a path that starts between the Sandos Papagayo resort and the coast, or by driving the dirt track. There’s a toll to pay on the track, a few euros. The beaches are worth the...More

The road to the beach is unpaved and bad. We were the only one in the road and were not sure if we are on the right direction. 3€ for entry which is worth it. It’s a beautiful spot. Prepare for a very windy area.

A nice little beach with three ways to get there, walk along the hills following the sea, by car which will cost you a Euro or by ferry The beach has a nice little resturant and the beach is safe to swim from

Lovely beaches with golden sand but a pain to get to due to very bumpy track which was long! Beware of the nudist end of one of the beaches if its not your scene - it is not ours!

there are no bars or restaurants on playa de Papagayo. that's the whole point of this beach. it's wild and away from all the amenities. bring a sandwich and some drink with you if plan to stay there for more than an hour.
