Our Beaches & Views
Arenas Del Mar has the great fortune of being situated on two unparalleled beaches: Playa Espadilla and Playitas Beach, which are contiguous with the property of the hotel.

Playa Espadilla is the stunning beach on the south side of the grounds with natural rock outcroppings protecting warm tide pools and where tropical shore birds are seen roosting.

Arenas Del Mar offers four buildings with apartments, suites and superior rooms which sit 150 feet above the aquamarine water below with stunning views out to Manuel Antonio National Park. In these rooms you can relax on the outside terrace while watching and listening to the glorious panorama of the waves breaking below.

Playitas Beach is a spectacular but cozy beach on the north side of the grounds which ends at Punta Quepos, a peninsula of primary forest and beautiful rock formations. This beach used to be a European-style, clothing optional beach before we began the project and although very uncommon, you may still see some “au natural” bathing at the far end of the beach. However, we are asking that all beach goers wear bathing suits in accordance with the law of Costa Rica.   -  -  -  -  -
