This beach is wonderful to walk along during the sunset. It is very clean, also there are lots of trees adjacent to the beach for wildlife to enjoy.

We went on a Sunday afternoon and it was quite busy, didn't feel overcrowded like a California beach but there were lots of tourists and locals hanging out and enjoying the water and views of the landscape. For more views, if you drive around there are many scenic overlooks in the area that make for great photo ops. No shortage of shade, vendors, and restaurants around so you could easily spend all day at the beach.

If you want uncrowded clean beaches and natural beauty Playa Hermosa is the perfect place. If you want to party and do days of shopping go to Playa Coco a few miles away.
The Playa Hermosa beaches are warm and peaceful. Even the beach vendors are low key and gracious. As I look out on our cold snow covered landscape I am dreaming of Playa Hermosa with the wonderful views and great people. It is pura vida .

Quiet Beautiful Beach Setting! Less busy than Coco Beach, this Pacific Coast Beach was pleasant with several nuce eateries, hotels, and an AiraBNB nearby. Only 30 minutes from Liberia Airport too! My wife loved the 1 hour sunset beach massage provided by Christina. We watched fishermen out on boats. The Sun sets were stunning!

Casa Ventanas, an outstanding wow factor Villa with well appointed, superb spacious accommodation in an attractive layout. Outstanding location with spectacular views.
The website information mirrored and actually exceeded all our expectations on Casa Ventaras! Anazing

Hiked to this beach from near the edge of Playa del Coco and it was hilly and fun but also pretty tiring. Nice quaint beach with decent number of shops and a nice beach to chill at

Freddy the owner of Salty Crew.. He Was Amazing!!. Took us out to catch game fishing. And with in 15 mins I was caught a 70 rooster fish and release it. Then he asked me if I wanted some fish to eat, I said sure.. So he took us out for red snapper, after another 1 1/2 hours and 15 large Red Snappers.. He's been fishing here over 50 years, he knows all the spots.

The perfect beach town in Costa Rica, but don’t tell anyone. Five or six good restaurants. A few hotels. A few nice home rentals. Beautiful beach. No crowds or traffic.

The beach isn't the most beautiful I've ever seen but the water is warm and for the most part it is quiet and scenic. There are some vendors on the beach that get a bit annoying but they do take no for an answer. Not sure I'd choose this beach or any of the Guanacaste beach areas on a next trip.
