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.

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
