Access to Playa Conchal is only a ten minute walk where you will find crystal clear water and a quiet white sand beach or you can continue to walk to the north end of the beach where you can swim, snorkel, soak up the sun and be treated to food and drink by the beachside vendors. In addition, there are several other beautiful beaches within walking or short driving distance. Pirates beach is a short drive from the condo where Daniel serves cold beverages and freshly grilled shrimp on the beach and wherer you can enjoy a gorgeous sunset. Brasilito is the nearest beach side community with restaurants, bars and basic shopping. Playa Minas is a quiet and secluded beach for swimming, relaxing and turtle watching during the evenings and is an easy walk from the condo. Often times this beach has less than 10 people on it and somedays you can have it all to yourselves. Playa Grande is one of the single longest beaches in Costa Rica with beach side restaurants and great surfing just a short drive from the condo. Playa Grande is also home to the giant Leatherback turtles that nest here each year. One of our favorite beaches is Playa Penca in Petrero (a little hard to find, but the locals will direct you). If clean sand beaches are not your style, there is the private pool located on the property.
Brasilito is a fishing village with restaurants and shopping a short distance from the condo. Flamingo Beach with additional shops and restaurants is just north of Brasilito.
