Something not right?

Description

The beach has several public access point, a few of which looked prime for boondocking. We chose the one on the north end as there is a vacant lot right there that we could pull into and it felt more remote (closer to the headland). We asked the neighbor if we could camp and he said no problem. A little buggy during our stay, but in all nice peaceful beach.

one of the best spots that we've being here in Costa Rica, we felt really safe, we slept with our windows opened, safe enough to sleep in a tent! we could get water from the house next, it is a big grassy area with ocean view, we slept here 5 nights, there is a river, many coconuts, just come and enjoy this paradise!

San Miguel Beach
Simply wonderful place, we stayed here for a week and didn't want to leave. Quiet, flat, safe, the most peaceful place we found in Costa Rica, just be careful with the coconuts because they can fall on the car lol.

Praia de San Miguel
Lugar simplesmente maravilhoso, ficamos aqui uma semana e não queríamos ir embora. Silencioso, plano, seguro, local mais tranquilo que encontramos na Costa Rica, só tomar cuidado com os cocos pq podem cair em cima do carro kkkk.

Beautiful beach, warm wind and perfect spot with shade under the palm trees. We got the location only for ourselves!

Spent a night here and then one night at the main beach entrance a bit south to get some solar. This spot is insanely beautiful. The beach is MASSIVE at low tide and perfect to play with your dog. Palm trees provide lots of shade and fresh coconuts to drink. One of the best sunsets I’ve ever seen in my life.

We spend one night there and WE had an Amazing sunset on the beach. The night was very calm and we were alone on the beach the morning to go to swim.
(be carrefull of the coconut and sandflies)

Nice and quiet spot for the night. Habitation near by but no one bothered. Lots of shadow, just watch for falling coconuts.

Probably our favorite place during our week along the Nicoya coastline. Drive to the very end of the road and out on to the rim of the beach. We felt completely safe, and we’re welcomed by Ticos offering us fresh oranges and quail eggs. Long peaceful beach perfect for running of you want to shake loose your beach legs. At the north end there are some nice caves and I reckon you can snorkel there. There’s a shack 5 minutes walk southwards serving ceviche, but we didn’t have cash so weren’t able to try it. Heavy thunderstorms in the horizon at night gave us the perfect late night entertainment.

Hard to beat - perfect beach camp site with shady palmtrees and a wide beach. Only a few locals came around during day, very quiet.
We strongly recommend to spend some days here and enjoy the beach.

This is THE place to come in Nicoya peninsula. It is paradise !! We spent 4 nights here and could have stayed a week. Under the trees, many spaces. A lot of locals come during the weekend but they leave at night. And during the week it is very quiet! Nice beach to surf for beginners. Great sunset! Tigo service working ok in some part of the beach. There is a water faucet ok a construction site nearby. They agreed for us to fill our bottles and portable shower and offered us to take a shower if we didn’t have enough.

Welcome to paradise. Hard to beat this place. Nice and shady in the afternoon. So close to the beach, lush palmtrees and the sound of crashing waves.
Absolutely recommend to take the time to go here!

Great spot at the end of the beach. Quiet on a Saturday. A few sandflies/noseeums, but not horrible. A truck with 2 guys did come at 9:30pm, but they just went fishing for an hour with their flashlights and then left again. Nice shady spot for tents and sitting, afternoon shade for cars.

Nice place! Quiet also on a Saturday night. Ocean is nice for swimming but be aware of rip tides. Annoying sand flies in the evening and morning otherwise perfect.

Parked here for one night at the end of the road between the palm trees (watch for coconuts). At night a police car arrived but didn't say anything and left after some minutes. In the afternoon and early morning some locals may come for fishing. Riptides in the ocean, take care.

Great place on the grass. It's quiet and secure with a hotel next door. The beach is very beautiful.

Great place! Stayed 2 nights and felt very safe. During the day (it was holiday season) there were a lot of Tico families but everyone left after sunset. The few tourists at the nearby hotels made us feel safe.

Great spot to camp for free. Parked on vacant lot at north end. Lots of coconuts to drink. Water looked a bit rough but great walking beach.

*road between Playa Islita and here is dirt but ok. Some steep sections but no river crossings.

This is awesome spot. Beautiful beach though during our stay the water was full of weird sticky orange foam, so decided not to stay longer. Pretty sure it was seasonal or one time thing.

Slept half way to the north end. Really quiet. Awesome for bonfires at the beach. Free. No one around
