There is an entrance fee, but there were plenty of chairs to rent. There was a lot of chair service available. The snorkeling is wonderful. It is relatively calm water with lots of fish and great visibility.

We visited it in November so there were no crowds. Some locals. Full of food facilities, restrooms, sweet water shower. Beach is tiny but sandy.

This beach is open to the public but seems to be part of a resort type community. IF you arrive before 8 am you don't need to pay to get in. We spent quite a while here. There's plenty to do to keep you busy.

Private beach, very touristy, about $4 per person to enter. Located at southeastern part of the island. With a lot of restaurants and souvenir stores

Nice area to walk and have a swim. Within the city in a suburban area. Lots of eateries nearby. Not the best beach on the island but good for its convenience.

This is a great beach for families staying at the Papagayo Resort or in the Jan Thiel area. It is just a little shopping area with a mostly man-made beach area within the resort. It's pretty, but you have to pay admission if you are...More
