Create an itinerary including Tamarindo Beach
Enjoy the wide, golden sands of Tamarindo Beach and watch as surfers take on the waves. Pop into one the beach bars to enjoy a cold drink, or check out what the vendors are peddling. If you’re interested in learning to surf, the beach provides easy going waves, perfect for beginners. Sun loungers and umbrellas are available for hire, but you might miss out on them unless you arrive early; consider bringing your own sun protection, as there's no natural shade at the beach. If you arrive at the right time, you can also enjoy a famous sunset from the shore. Plan to visit Tamarindo Beach during your Tamarindo vacation using our convenient Tamarindo itinerary builder app.

  • This is the nastiest beach. Don’t waste your time going to this beach or town. I don’t know where google got their pictures but this picture is not a true scene, it’s not a nice place. Businesses...

  • A beautiful beach that’s well maintained and very clean. The sand is soft and the water is warm. The water is also shallow so you can go out pretty far without being that deep. Also, be sure to stay for the sunset. You’ll be glad you did!
  • Beautiful beach beautiful little Beach tourist town lots of restaurants very trendy and very clean and modern it's got some beautiful boutiques for shopping. It is on the busier side for a quiet Beach town it's almost too busy for my taste. But it is nice. The people there are super friendly the restaurants are great the beaches are big and there's lots of things to do.
