Beach
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.

  • Beautiful white sand beach and turquoise, waters with reefs for snorkeling! To get you should take the road to Manuel Antonio, Quepos passes and when you get to the top mountain turns off to the right about 2 Kms, let the cart to the side hotel Chana, walk 200 meters and gets over a path of Earth and stone for 200 meters, there itself you will see monkeys, Titis, lazy bears, and when you arrive you will amaze you with the landscape white sand with a little stones,(lleve zapatos playa) turquoise sea you fall in love in conjunction with the greenery of the forest which surrounds it, you can snorkel and see beautiful multicolored fish, then it only takes the Sun and rest. You must bring your meal since there are several people who sell food and drink but very rudimentary and expensive. About 2 pm the tide and you must be careful where you leave your belongings, also beware of the monkeys that you can take your bag. Perfect and hidden paradise.

  • Is a beach a bit hard to find since access is a little complicated if you're in flip-flops (which if not alert you as is the shoes you wear because you are going to a beach) so you better wear flip-flops in the backpack because to be able to access it you have to down an embankment which is almost all quagmire then you have to climb and with flip flops, I assure you that it is quite complicated, then there the scenery is spectacular, is a pretty quiet place, there are also sunbeds and umbrella for what it does not need that you you take your, think they were 8 dollars rent, the same "hammocks" sold soft drinks and beer and cocktail service. A Cove that visit.

  • We found this beach between quepos and manuel antonio, not easy access but super nice. Meet capuchin monkeys, it is great for swimming.
