  • It is a very nice Beach, you can also swim very well in the Sea. He's not overcrowded, but still not necessarily a Must-See on a Costa Rica trip. There are no parking Spaces on Site, you have to park in the Neighbouring Village. Various private Individuals try to rip off the Tourists to take care of the Car. We finally paid 4 USD and then had to walk about 8 Minutes to Playa Conchal.

  • This is one of the beaches that one says I Love Costa Rica Its crystalline Waters The rocky part how it is formed is impressive along the silver and seeing how a mountain makes the water change and the sand in so few meters definitely makes it one of the best

  • 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.
