Stunning beach and a beautiful finish to a guided tour through the Manuel Antonio National Park. Worth the time and effort to visit but don’t forget your swimsuit and towel

Very beautiful beach, but when we were there it was extremely crowded. We did see a lot of monkeys, and the walk was pleasant. The parking can be a hassle.

The water was 85°, the sand stretched out forever and was golden and powdery. It’s a moon shaped beach and there is very little rough current , it is just a gentle place to soak up some sun and enjoy splashing in the water absolutely...More

The surroundings and the park were fantastic! We saw sloths and monkeys and more. The kids were excited. But it was quite crowded with tourists and the monkeys and racoons were very aggressively looking for snacks.
