Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We spent a lazy morning here enjoying the soft, light sand and the turquoise waters. It was one of the most beautiful beaches we have enjoyed while in Costa Rica. The road access is a bit adventuresome and we were glad to have an SUV.

This beach is a little out of the way but very quiet away from the crowds. Pay for parking $2Mil colons. Little shade. Nothing there but the beach.

Found this gorgeous beach after a long trek down a horrible road. Our little rental car made it but atv, truck or suv would be better. Not many people, clear water...loved it! Worth trying to get there.

Very nice secluded beach. A little hard to get to, but very private. Better have an SUV. But totally worth it. Mostly locals. No amenities.

I have no idea how you’d get here otherwise but it’s gorgeous and deserted. Our guide says it’s his favorite beach and it only gets crowded twice a year.

Off a dirt road down unmarked road lies Playa Minas. Wonderful for swimming, a picnic or a beach walk.
There are no amenities here so bring your own and lots of water if your spending the day. There are trees for shade and you can easily SUP or kayak here.

While we had a wonderful time visiting this beach earlier this month, we were welcomed back to our rental vehicle with a broken glove box lock. We went for a 45 minute hike out to the point on the south side of this beach. While not immediately obvious, someone gained access into our vehicle by bending the front passenger door using a rod or "slim jim" device. They then broke the lock on our glove box door and removed cash and cell phones. Thankfully, they opted to leave all other wallet contents. Despite the remoteness of this beach, it is not exempt from petty theft. There were only 8-10 other people on the beach and none saw or heard this event. My recommendation is to take ALL OF YOUR VALUABLES WITH YOU.

Pretty nice spot! It is a place for locals, you don’t find crowds and the water is crystal clear! There is a hike trail that will lead you to a nice observatory and a second beach with unique views!

If you are looking for a secluded beach, then this is for you!! Beautiful non touristic, no vendors. There are no amenities so good for a few hours to spend on the beach.

I found this beach doing my research for the trip and it did not disappoint us!. WAY off the beaten path, you will stumble upon this small beach with huge character. You can snorkel (won't see much but water is crystal clear) and play on the rocks at bit. Most likely if you get there early enough in the AM you will be the only one there. There was a family camping at the far end when we arrived and that was it. The beach did start to get crowded around 10:00am. It was the weekend, and all visitors looked local, so I would say that a week day trip from about 8:00am - 12:00 would be perfect. There are spots to park your car in the shade and places to set up in the shade also. The sand can get CRAZY hot so be careful. The only negative in this little paradise, was that the stupid Westin resorts ATV tour goes to this beach, they come barreling in on the bikes, make a bunch of noise, take a few pics, then leave. Few minutes of distraction, then its all your again.
