It was the best beach I have ever been to!!! The water was warm, the sand, soft, great waves! Very cool inlet near low tide where the water was calm and so clear. Some people, more locals,not touristy! Food and vibe was great at Lola's! Definitely worth the trip!!!

we were staying in Hacienda Pinilla, a short walk from this beach and the JW Marriott. There is a path next to the hotel down to the beach and you can pass the hotel and walk a good 40-45 minutes to the end of Playa Avellana. There are some rocky areas, so bring water shoes or sandals, but it is mostly Flat and Firm beach, with a gentle tide that gives you lots of sand at low tide, and still a decent amount at high tide.

Good assortment of shells, too. And the sand is firm and cool and so easy to walk on. There is even a nice beach bar at the south end of the beach, with recliners and umbrellas and good food to relax at.

Wonderful beach that offers peace, a lot of sun and crear water to enjoy with friends and family. Near you can find Lola’s Restaurant to enjoy a beer and seafood.

A beautiful, of the beaten path location with natural sandy beach and great surf.

This area is getting built up. More restaurants and accommodations are being built.
The once quiet local vibe had caught on and things are booming in the area.
For now still a really quaint, quiet, surf centred place to visit and enjoy.
Highly recommend Lucy’s for a sunset cocktail and pizza.

On a dirt road you get to paradise. Recommend 4x4. Laid back vibe. Only a few restaurants one high end Italian and a few local. Spectacular views.

Always make a point t of a day trip to this beach. Our favorite. Spotless, few vendors, great surf and pristine water. Stop in at Lola's for lunch while here. Food and service is top shelf.

What a nice beach. Great restaurants on the beach and mostly locals. Not too crowded despite the holiday.

Weather you walked north or south on the beach you saw some of the most beautiful scenery on any coast anywhere. You have a variety of beaches with lots of sand, swimming, surfing and even horseback riding! Beautiful!

Nice comfortable beach for most part. We decided to pay $30 to have an umbrella and 2 lounge chairs and drink/ snack service from Jeffrey from Lolas
Beach has a big hidden rocky area that can make it tricky to walk into water. Surf school hut available
Water was comfortably warm. Not crowded. It’s about halfway between Playa Negra and a tamarindo

We loved this beach! It was a little out of the way, but super clean with friendly locals, great surfing for my boyfriend and shady spots for me. Lola’s even has hammocks they let you use under their palm trees! Sad we went on our next to last day, or we would have spent many more days there.
