  • Conchal beach is the best beach in the area options for the practice of snorkeling. Hopefully promote plans for an appropriate management of this resource. Visibility depends on the time of year.

  • Beautiful beach! Large, white sand, beautiful blue water, calm, and super fun! One of our favorite beaches from our trip! Just keep driving until you past the Resort and park along the beach.
  • It's one of the most unique and beautiful beaches I've ever seen in my life, You gotta live it!!! By the way, local ppl will tell you you can't park at that specific beach but there is a way to get there so don't believe them just keep driving till you get there. Also I can't believe someone would rate this beach less than 5 stars, these people are retarded!
  • Beautiful, white sand and blue water beach. Waves are nice and calm. The beach is very clean. Local vendors offer canopy tents with beach / lounging chairs. Please be careful getting to the beach. We followed Google Maps and it took us through unpaved roads, ponds of water, road over sand. On the way back part of the road was under water due to high tide. We had a large SUV and made it through.
  • Best beach in Costa Rica 💙
  • This place is incredibly awesome. You must to get there at least once in your life 👌
