Playa Biesanz, Manuel Antonio

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.

  • I went with my daughter and I loved that being a closed Bay wave is almost nil and you can enjoy to the fullest. You can rent equipment for super snorklin cheap and for a little more you can hire Don José, a somewhat entered into years Lord but who has the energy of a teenager. I went swimming to corals (300 meters away from the coast) but kayaks can be rented to do so. He took us to a small reef where we saw hundreds of incredible fish. Preferred full

  • We reach this paradise hidden from Manuel Antonio, with the bus permanently flowing toward Quepos, getting off at a parador and walking 2 km from UPS and downs very nice and then a stretch down the jungle. What dream! Hot water, almost no people, but we were able to rent a Chair and umbrella, buy a few beers and delicious burgers. The jungle in contact with the sea in its best condition! Soft and warm waves of a tiny Bay with possibility to make snorkeling very close among the corals. Back... anyone you can call a taxi very economic if not want to walk the path. I recommend it

  • This beach cove is very clean and a nice break from the other local beaches nearby. The view is just spectacular and the water is calmer. The people who were renting out the lounge chairs, umbrellas, ...  more »

  • One of the best beaches I have been to. Great swimming, warm water, not to rough, there are no bathrooms but you can rent chairs and umbrellas and buy for and drinks. I recommend the passion fruit mojito! Amazing
  • Don't miss out on Angela's delicious and refreshing home-made ceviche! Best we've had, hands down.
  • Beautiful cove with shallow calm water perfect for children. There are no bathroom facilities so guess where all the sunbathers do their needs....
  • Great environment, however you have to travel in car or taxi, the entrance its complicated, you have to park the car on the main rode and then walk like down in a hill (Bring sport shoes) but once you arrived to the place you will enjoy the view, the beach has stones and rocks so be very carefully.
  • Tucked away kinda hidden beach. We hiked down from main road to beach (and up again). It's quite a hike if you are not ready to sweat and have a good workout:). Saw lots of cute little squirrel monkeys and a big group of howlers by the trees right before the entrance to the beach. That was the highlight since the beach was ok. Perhaps it's the time of year (early Dec) where the water is murky and you will bump into rocks / dead corals when u attempt to swim.
