  • Well worth the trip to Playa Conchal The beech is only accessible by 4x4 but if you don't have 4x4 you can park and walk about .5 miles back to the beach. Very pretty! Make time to include this beach ...  more »
  • I loved Playa Conchal. The beach is literally made of washed up shells and it's a lot of fun to walk in, search for shells, play ball, etc. There is a spot where you can order drinks and food right on...  more »
  • This beach is a must-see for anyone who is in the region. The sea is clear and with a very good temperature, and the shells (sand) are very beautiful and different from anything we've ever seen. Has many sellers (snorkelling, massage, etc), but this is normal for a tourist spot. Access is a bit tricky, because it is the beach. Just go by car 4 x 4, and even then be careful because it is very easy to get bogged down depending on the day. The jetski rental is very worthwhile, because the view from the sea to the beach is even prettier than the beach to the sea, I recommend!
