If the main beaches in Manuel Antonio are busy, this little beach is well worth the extra hike! The beach is very shaded by the trees, and the water was very calm.

The beach is pristine and there is a great view from the end of the trail. This will also take you a little further from the crowds

This is a small beach located within Manuel Antonio Park. It's not as crowded as the other two beaches and there are a lot of monkeys hanging out, which is fun. However, it is rather difficult to swim due to the rocks, so I found...More

This is a nice small beach, it has some wildlife on it, iguanas, crabs, and some different birds. It is about 30minuets from the park entrance, and nice spot for lunch or just to relax. The rip tide is strong here so probably no swimming....More

We swam at Gemelas beach yesterday.It is small, surrounded by rock formations. Watter is more wild than on other beaches in the park, but still good for swimming. There were monkies on the beach searching backapcks and steeling food. Keep them closed.

Worth the hike to get to a quieter and smaller beach with fewer people. They are GORGEOUS with views for days!!

This is a beautiful small cove in Manuel Antonio park. It is dramatic with its rock formations jutting out into the sea. However, these same formations make for lots of rip tides. Swimming is not advised here. Take a few photos and then head back...More

A very good beach but we prefer the Manuel Antonio big beach and the small one Playa Biesanz. It is clean but no good for no good swimmers.
