Manuel Antonio and the Central Pacific Coast Sights

Playa Bejuco

  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

The surf here is as big and consistent as at Playa Hermosa, but with a fraction of the surfers. As at Hermosa, dangerous rip currents develop, so swimmers should go in no deeper than their waist when the waves are big. Aside from surfing and beachcombing, there is little to do here, which makes it a good place for people wanting to do nothing at all. Like most surrounding beaches, the sand is dark brown with the occasional palm tree offering shade on the shore. The mosquitoes can be quite fearsome during the rainy months. Amenities are at neighboring Delfín Beach Resort and Hotel Playa Bejuco. Amenities: food and drink; toilets. Best for: solitude; surfing.
