Beautiful empty beach that was super calm for family swimming with small kids The sand is dark so the water is dark. There were very little waves so no rip tides.

one of the most beautiful and clean beaches in Costa Rica. Sand is light, no shells, and no people! Easy to find and take a picnic, parking is fantastic.

Didn't want to leave this beach. Not very many people, but worth the incredible views and great sand. Water was pretty cold, but also some shallow pools and rock outcrop to walk to if you want to see the coastline. Most amazing sunset and very...More
