Small, nice and no waves at all
May 2021
A very beautiful small beach hidden behind an amazing jungle. We stayed at the Shana hotel, so we had a private direct access to this hidden paradise.

Semi-Private Getaway
Apr 2021
Although this is not a private beach most of the time is stay pretty remote. Playa Biesanz is shared by a couple of hotels and residences and has a few workers selling drinks, chairs, Umbrellas, and some activities...it can still be a nice little quiet sunspot. I myself like to visit the beach early mornings and do a little exploring and photography.

Nice beach with direct access when staying at the Shana by the Beach Hotel
Apr 2021
Nice beach spot with warm, calm waters. If you like to swim it's a nice place to start! This pet-friendly beach is a sunny paradise, and if you need chairs or umbrellas they are available to rent. I found it easy to get to when staying at the Shana by the Beach Hotel. They have direct access to the trail leading to the beach. You may even spot a Howler monkey one day like I did. Relax and enjoy nature!

Hidden Beach!
May 2021 • Friends
This place ended up being our favorite beach in town. We ended up going here twice as the owner who runs the chairs/umbrellas/grill/bar is terrific! Check the tides and be sure to visit at low tide as the beach can be consumed by the ocean. Wear good shoes as the trek down is slippery. Take a taxi as the walk down the hill can be an adventure but is possible.

Tucked away
Apr 2021 • Couples
Great spot, accessible by staying at Shana By the Beach or by parking alongside the road and walking the path down. We visited twice, the first day it was rough with lots of waves and high tide made for little seating. The second time we went, the tide was very low and the sand was beautiful. The water was calm with high visibility. The chairs/umbrellas are to rent only and they also have a small drink bar and music playing.

Beautiful

Beautiful small and clean beach with excellent views. Behind it there is a jungle full with monkeys and many different animals. Our hotel where we stayed the Shana By The Beach has a direct access to this nice beach, so we enjoyed walking down everyday.

Stunning!
Mar 2021
Playa Biesanz is like heaven on earth. Its breathtaking natural beauty is a must-see. Be sure to have colones or US dollars to tip the folks who will watch your car while you are on the beach and so you can rent chairs and an umbrella and enjoy amazing mojitos brought right to your beach chair!

Disappointing
Mar 2021 • Family
This beach was very disappointing to us. The sand is more like mud and it’s very rocky. The water is dirty and murky because it’s a cove. You can’t see the sunset from here. The view is lovely though.
