Along the shores of the Pacific Ocean lies Playa Conchal, a memorable shell-sand beach. With calm, crystal clear waters, the beach serves as the perfect destination for swimming and snorkeling. An array of marine life awaits you beneath the water, with the possibility of catching a glimpse of a stingray or other exotic creature. If you're feeling more adventurous, you can go deep-sea fishing or scuba diving, or participate in a number of other water sports. The beach also has a few areas suitable for a night of camping under the stars. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Playa Conchal holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Playa Conchal and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Playa Conchal Reviews
Probablemente la mejor playa de la zona... sin más que decir. Arena de conchitas (no es arena fina tipo harina) pero no molesta. Recomendaciones: Ojo intentarán cobrarte 5000c por aparcar. Hay sitio p... more »Probably the best beach in the area... without further ado. Conchitas sand (not fine flour-like sand) but not annoying. Recommendations: Eye will try to charge you 5000c for parking. There is room to park a little further for free... although I must also say that I saw a car with a broken window. I paid. Ojo will try to sell you horseback riding routes and all sorts of things. We did the route on horseback and it was frankly disappointing (almost scamming). Try to go at low tide.
Disfrutamos mucho de esta hermosa playa, el lugar es muy limpio y la playa es muy tranquila. Especial para ir a disfrutar en familia. more »We really enjoyed this beautiful beach, the place is very clean and the beach is very quiet. Special to go and enjoy with family.
Well definitely return to this are to explore more. Sat under the mangrove to hide from the sun. Lots and lots of shells to pick through on the beach. There is a great beach club here as a part of a resort hotel complex.
Nice beach. Best to park at Brasilito Beach near the fish market restaurant, pay about 4.00 for parking and walk to Conchal beach, about a 10 minute walk. Neat reef for snorkelling if the water is calm. Can rent a canopy and chairs for 20.00. The beach is unique and a must see due to the crushed shells making up the beach. Quite busy with tourists but a neat beach to hit.
