The Best Diving in Costa Rica


Flamingo Beach is one of our favorite beaches and lies on the west side of Flamingo town. It gets its name from the slightly pink-white sand. It is a little over 1km long, is fairly flat, uninterrupted and for the most part is calm. You get a great view of Las Catalinas Islands from here and the sunsets can be amazing. This beautiful beach is surprisingly quiet early mornings and weekdays, but beware of weekends and public holidays as it can quickly become crowded. Coco-Loco, one of the most popular restaurants in the area, sits closer to the south side of the beach and is right on sand. Best experienced late afternoon and at dinner time, get there early for a front row view of the sunset. There are two accommodation options on Flamingo Beach. Margaritaville on the North point and The Palms Residence on the South point. The North and South ridges are littered with luxury rental homes and condos.
