Absolutely stunning beach right off of Santarena Hotel and Pura Vide Ride & Rentals. Calm, crystal clear waters where you can swim and enjoy the day sun bathing. It was never crowded, and was also able to see some seagulls fishing and flying over the beach on numerous occasions. Beautiful views of the sunset over the surrounding hills as well.

This is a nice quiet beach but the sand is brown, grey, and black so it's not very pretty. It's a good place to paddle board, swim, or just hang out but we prefer beaches with whiter sand.

This is a great beach! One minute golf cart ride from Casa Chameleon. Nice, shady spots. Beautiful black sand (that is very hot on your feet when it’s not wet) and really pretty red shells.

To access this beach you need to either wait for the tide to go out a bit or walk through Las Catalinas and take the wooden walkway over a small creek and then follow a path through the woods up and down bike trails and it will deposit you at the beach.

There are no facilities. The beach is secluded and you will not see many if any people. The sand is much nicer than at Las Catalinas. On a Sunday’s you will some some local families on the beach enjoying the day and picnicking.

There are rocks in one spot right in front of Lemonada. Avoid those, go east a bit and there are no rocks and sandy bottom.

If you are near Tamarindo in CR, you have to visit Las Catalinas and be ready for the beach and for a hike, and of course a good camera, here you can see the famous islet with a tree in the middle, swim at the beach Danta and Dantita and hike the trial or rent a bike and do the whole thing if you have the time and energy for a mountain bike 2 hours ride.

There is a public parking lot and people taking an eye on the vehicles, we leave our rental car there with our backpacks and no problem.

Bring your drinks, food and snack, there is a restaurant by the villas with far away restaurant prices. And there is a store for souvenirs, good mountain bikes for rent and other things.

A great beach which offers free access to it. It can get a bit crowded towards late morning but you will always find space to relax and enjoy.

This a a great beach with good waves for the kids. Chair rental as well as boogie board and paddle board rental is available on site. Lunch is available on the beach in the shade at Limonada and they have great activities for the kids as well.

We visited this beach twice while renting a house on Playa Potrero. It’s surrounded by a huge high end development but still draws both locals and tourists, and was clearly a popular spot without being overcrowded. There is a bar and restaurant with solid food (lunch/snacks and cocktails were better than dinner in our experience) and a shop with coffee and water sport rentals run by very friendly, knowledgeable staff. On our first visit, early in our trip, we swam out to the small diving raft and lounged on the beach. The second time we rented boogie boards as the waves were perfect, and spent hours in the water before watching the sun set.
