  • This beach is large, and nice and quiet where you are not bombarded by venders. Darker course sand that can get hot in places. Several bars and restaurants along it.  more »
  • Not the cleanest beach - more backpackers and a party scene. for surf check out Playa Hermosa & Maderas in the area.. even swimming is nicer down in the Maderas to Playa Majagual areas.  more »
  • Definitely to talk about San Juan de el Sur, comes to our mind or in the google search the impressive Bay, between Golden and grey sand, gentle waves average morning and in the afternoon or early in the morning strong waves that can do some surfing techniques for the Beginner s or buggyboarding. Nothing as take a break on the beach, leave to the Sun Kiss us skin or jump into the water and enjoy a good time behind the breakwater. Very quiet to be a tourist destination if you go in the off-season, since as I commented in high time as Easter is almost impossible to walk on the beach, being one of the most accessible and beautiful beaches of Nicaragua. Along the beach you will find several bars and restaurants offering drinks to make more pleasant temperatures. On this occasion I did not see any seller ambuleante, quiet, perfect to relax.
