Costa Rica holds so many different beaches to have fun in the sun. Literally, thousands of Kilometers of the beautiful coast for you to sit back relax and enjoy a beach day. We have some favorites to, and to give you an idea of some great spots, here are our five favorite beach locations in Costa Rica.
Manuel Antonio has a few awesome beaches, but the one we are talking about is right in the national park. It will take you about 30 to 45 minutes of walking to get to, but worth it. This is one of the most famous beaches in Costa Rica because of its famed whale tale shape. Also, you get the chance to experience two beaches on either side of the tale. Not only that but it truly is a gorgeous spot for you and the family to enjoy.
Located in the province of Guanacaste, Tamarindo is held as one of the top surfing destinations of this little country. If you haven’t ever surfed before then don’t be too shy as Tamarindo is a great place to learn. And there are quite a few places to take lessons. The small town of Tamarindo only adds to the flavor of this spot after a long day at the beach it can be good to wind down and have a drink or eat at one of the local restaurants.
Flamingo beach is yet another great spot, having pinkish sand giving it the name of flamingo. This beach also has an endless array of activities that you might be interested in including scuba diving, snorkeling, sports fishing, surfing, golf and even some great national parks in the area.
We also have some unique villas in Dominical if you are looking to stay here. This particular beach holds some fun options for you. It is also a little bit further off the beaten path than other beaches on the list. You will love the perfect surfing conditions here and if you’re not into surfing than just sit back in your chair in the warm sand and let the breeze blow your stresses away.
Optional Beach is somewhat unique for the fact that sea turtles come to visit it every single year. You can first see the mothers laying eggs and also see the babies hatch and rush out to sea. This site is a great attraction for anyone to see. Honestly, you will love every minute of it.
So whether you are a pro surfer or just came to relax, Costa Rica has some of the best beaches in all central America. If you have questions about where you should visit let us know.
