Fodor's Review

Ensconced within the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge, this beach comes close to being picture perfect with the lush green forest—and their resident howler monkeys—bordering the edge of the sand. The in-town stretches put you close to food and drink. A few reports of bag snatchings have occurred here when visitors weren't paying attention. As always on this stretch of coast, avoid walking on the beach alone and be careful about going into the water, the undertow

can be strong. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: snorkeling; surfing; walking.
