Playa Manuel Antonio Playitas Beach

Playitas Beach is a small, cozy beach that sits on the north end of Playa Espadilla beyond the rocky point. It is one of Costa Rica’s most famous gay beaches. For years it was also one of Costa Rica’s only nude beaches, but the region’s growing hotel industry has changed that. While Playitas Beach is technically still the same beach as Playa Espadilla, there is a large gap between the main public beach and Playitas Beach. The beach is inaccessible during high tide, so make sure to factor that in!
