Playa Nosara, Costa Rica
The main beach of Nosara is Playa Guiones, six kilometers of immaculate white sand stretching in a straight beautiful line from Punta Pelada in the north to Punta Guiones to the south. Easily accessible, Guiones is the best surf spot in the area, with consistent long waves and both left and right breaks.
The shell-strewn beach of Playa Pelada to the north of Guiones is protected by an offshore barrier reef, making it suited for swimming. Around Playa Pelada there are tidal pools and natural caves at the northern end of the bay.
