Well, of course no beach-combing list could be complete without mentioning our very own (and very famous, if we do say so ourselves!) Tamarindo Beach. It may have been the beach that put our town on the map, but it’s so much more than that.
Playa Tamarindo unrolls over more than a mile of soft, blonde sands abutting famous surf that swings from mild to monster. FYI, this is a great place to stop for lunch, as Tamarindo is lined with restaurants and shops. And yet, it’s still spectacularly beautiful and one of our favorite places in the region. (Surprise, surprise – right?) So, expect warm smiles and warm sunshine, with a side of scenic palms and plenty of surfing talent to watch.
Playa Junquillal is beach alchemy – that perfect kind of place, where arcing waves crash onto warm sands and howler monkeys hoot in the trees. This is a place dedicated to wildlife conservation and pristine nature: palm trees line deserted beaches, fish swim beneath clear waters, and famed surf forms amazing waves.
Down a dusty dirt road, just a mile south of Tamarindo, Playa Langosta offers up a stretch of white sand and rocky outcroppings. Decidedly quieter and less developed than its big brother to the north, Langosta Beach is the place you go when you want a quiet day at the beach (plus a swimming hole or two).
Add in startling sunsets, a truly beautiful setting, and quick convenience (about 5 minutes) to all the surf shops, restaurants, and other services you might want during a day at the beach, and we think you’ll see why Langosta snags a spot on your must-visit list.
