Playa Manuel Antonio Espadilla Norte Beach

Espadilla Norte Beach, stretches for more than 2 km (1 mile) north from the rocky peak that marks the park’s border to the base of the ridge that holds most of the hotels. One of the most popular beaches in Manuel Antonio, it fills up with lots of tourists on Sunny Season weekends and holidays, but it is mostly quiet for the rest of the year. Even on the busiest days it is long enough to offer some privacy from those who tend to gather around the restaurants and lounge chairs near its southern end. Though it is often safe for swimming, beware of sudden strong rip currents.
