Beach Nature / Park
Enjoy the wide, golden sands of Tamarindo Beach and watch as surfers take on the waves. Pop into one the beach bars to enjoy a cold drink, or check out what the vendors are peddling. If you’re interested in learning to surf, the beach provides easy going waves, perfect for beginners. Sun loungers and umbrellas are available for hire, but you might miss out on them unless you arrive early; consider bringing your own sun protection, as there's no natural shade at the beach. If you arrive at the right time, you can also enjoy a famous sunset from the shore. Put Tamarindo Beach and other Tamarindo attractions into our Tamarindo travel itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • A very average beach, lots of litter left by ticos and other tourists. Waves only for beginners. This beach is part of a dirty beach town. Cool to see for a day or so, especially for 20 year olds who ...  more »
