The tropical rainforest hides the white sands and clear blue waters of Biesanz Beach. A secluded cove just off Quepos, you can find it by looking for the trail entrance a hundred yard after the Shana Hotel (a small dirt road leading into the forest). Although it is a short hike to the beach, make sure you take into account the tides, as the beach becomes a lot smaller during the high tide. This is a perfect spot for activities like kayaking, canoeing and snorkeling. All the equipment is available for renting so don’t worry about brining anything!
