Playa Biesanz, Manuel Antonio National Park

(600+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
Venture off the beaten path as you step onto the cream-colored sand of Playa Biesanz. The beach is small and secluded, reached by a short trail through tropical rainforest. The trail begins at a small break in a fence between hotels Shana and Parador. Shade trees border the beach, where you can read a book or just admire the view. Go snorkeling in the clear waters, or kayak offshore to go exploring. A nearby submerged rock is known for being a good snorkeling spot. Put Playa Biesanz at the forefront of your travel plans using our Manuel Antonio National Park vacation trip planner.
