Playa Ostional
This an extensive and wide open beach with strong waves that is connected on its southern end to Nosara, which is separated by División. This beach is internationally known because here and in Nancite (San Rosa National Park) is where the largest number of Olive Ridley sea turtles come to nest, especially from July to November. That’s why this beach and the entire coast to the south until Punta Guiones belong to the Ostional Wildlife Refuge. The most scenic part of this beach is located toward the north along the rocky coast.

One of the biggest and most exciting attractions in Guanacaste is the Ostional Wildlife Refuge. This wildlife sanctuary provides visitors with the opportunity to get up close and personal with a diverse and rich ecosystem.The refuge was initially created in an effort to protect the nesting beaches of the Olive Ridley Sea Turtle. To this day, you can visit the beach and watch thousands of these turtles saunter onto the shoreline to lay their eggs. It is one of the most spectacular sites you will ever see..

Playas Pleito & San Juanillo
These small little inlets are abundant with coastal vegetation. Both are linked by a rocky surface that joins Punta Trinidad and Punta Pleito. The later, on its far southern end has a small bend, which is ideal for swimming. On the other hand, San Juanillo has a unique little tip (Trinidad), which has waves of fine sand that form a small cove with calm waves. It extends south several hundred feet creating Cocal Beach.

Playa Marbella
Lying between Playa Manzanillo and Playa Ostional, the beautiful and picturesque town of Marbella is full of character and charm. The gorgeous Playa Marbella or Marbella beach with its stunning white sands and clear blue waters is within easy walking distance from town.

The beach here is one of the best in the area for surfers, as it offers world class consistent surf breaks due to offshore winds. With these excellent conditions, it is no wonder that many local as well as foreign surfers come here on a regular basis. However, it should be noted that Playa Marbella is meant for the more experienced and skilled surfers, as the waves here can get pretty big. The beach is normally quite quiet and is rarely crowded, making it ideal for the surfer who wishes to get away.

Playa Tamarindo
Tamarindo along with Playa Grande and Ventanas forms the Tamarindo Bay. It is a beautiful beach with many rocky areas and an island (Capitán) on the far southern end. It is lined with lush vegetation like, savannah oak, tamarind trees, and coconut trees. It has a variety of high quality services that allow you to enjoy the ocean during the day and party at night. This beach is ideal for relaxing, hiking, and turtle nesting observation. From this bay and to the south is a very popular coastal area for surfing. This beach is Blue Flag certified, meaning it has been recognized for its cleanliness and safety.
