  • Long, gorgeous beach with plenty of shade by the road. Beautiful sunsets and lots of space to stroll, or spread out and spend the day.  more »
  • Enjoyed this gorgeous beach so much! The palms provided plenty of shade while watching the kids playing in the calm, warm water. There are some tables to picnic as well.  more »
  • It’s like floating in a giant bathtub here! The waves are so gentle, it’s perfect for floating and swimming and small kids. My favorite beach in the area for sure! Definitely not for surfing, and make sure to bring food if you want any at the beach. Unlike Samara, there is nothing built up on the beach. The most you will find are pipa fría (cold fresh young coconut to drink/eat) and a concoction that is somewhat like a snow cone from vendors with carts walking by. I hear you can walk from Samara beach in an hour along the water and then crossing over the road at the end of Samara, or there’s a bus, or biking, ATV or car. So many ways to go, so just make sure you go!!!
  • Huge beach looking out across the Pacific, great place to take the dog for a walk
