Es una playa de fotografía, hermosa, llena de paz, rodeada de vegetación, hay muchos árboles para reposar y taparse del sol, el agua cristalina, la arena blanca, y así como el nombre llena de conchas ... more »It is a photography beach, beautiful, full of peace, surrounded by vegetation, there are many trees to rest and cover the sun, the crystal clear water, the white sand, and as well as the name full of shells of all sizes and colors, super recommended, the road to get there it is in perfect condition, and in the nearby village you can find all the services (hotels, transport, restaurants, banks, supermarkets, etc.)
Almost a private beach for the W hotel guests, as it is difficult for the general public to reach there. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Great place for horseback riding, swimming, massages, lounging. more »
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.
