Playa Grande

Playa Grande beach is separated from Tamarindo by the mouth of a river. When the tide is low it can be swum without problems but, if the waves are high it is not recommended to swim because there are many dangeres currents. In this case, the waves are desired by surfers that prefer this type of condition. From November to March this beach is the site of egg-laying Baula turtles.
