Palo Seco Beach, Parrita

4.2
#9 of 17 in Beaches in Province of Puntarenas
Treat your feet to the soft black sand of Palo Seco Beach as you stroll by the Pacific Ocean. Abundant with palm trees, sea shells, and surf friendly waters, the long thin stretch of beach is an excellent location to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Bring your own food and retreat to one of the picnic areas under the shade of trees. Collect sea shells as you walk along the sand and look out for hermit crabs dashing towards the water. Be aware of strong currents and rips if you decide to go swimming. A picturesque sunset awaits those who stick around until dusk. Plan your visit to Palo Seco Beach and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Parrita itinerary planner.

    Beach very extensive, ideal for walking or running, sit down to read or simply relax listening to the sound of the sea. It is not recommended to swim in this beach by marine currents. Very suitable to watch the sunset.

    The beach is several kilometres long and is most of the time almost empty. The sand is fine and a little black. Unfortunately, there is some trash lying around here and there. The waves are quite strong so swims rather reserved for the very good swimmers. A great place for a stroll or jog along the beach.
