It’s off the beaten path but definitely worth it. Great place to swim, sunbathe and chill. Love this beach. We go here every time we go to Costa Rica

This beach is uncrowded and one of the most beautiful places on earth I’ve ever seen. There are tress for shade. The water is warm and calm. Not a beach that you need to worry about rip and surf. There is also a side of the beach that looks north and provides a great view. As well as the rocks that you can walk out onto and watch the waves crash. No vendors hawking their crap here like in Tamarindo. Beautiful and unspoiled. Our favorite place.

Great low-key beach with friendly locals. Lovely sand, shells and sunsets. Water is warm. Hermit crabs everywhere, loved it!

This is a more remote area, and accessed via a gravel road for about 20 miles. It’s a lovely beach, with lots of rocks, tons of shells, minimal people. If you roll that way, then this is for you. Away from crowds is what this place offers. Amazing sunsets over the rocks!

San Juanillo is a beautiful secluded beach on the Guanacaste Coast of Costa Rica. We were there on a weekend and there were only a few locals there. I can imagine that during the week you'd have this amazing beach to yourself. A gorgeous white sand cove beach on one side with reef for snorkelling on the other side. Visit Guanacaste Coast for virtually untouched beaches! You only need to travel a little south from the more touristy Playa Hermosa and Tamarindo. Do rent a 4-wheel drive vehicle though as the roads aren't paved and pretty rough!
