Tamarindo Beach

Quick Facts

  • Location : Tamarindo
  • Altitude : Sea level

Strong steady waves and welcoming warm waters attract both novice and seasoned surfers to Tamarindo Beach. Travelers flock for sunbathing, surfing and other sporting activities so during high season (between December and May) expect large crowds and plenty of locals trying to give you a surf lesson. A great destination for a day at the beach, Tamarindo’s shores are ideal for people-watching and swimming. But, with the hoards of novice surfers taking lessons just off shore, many experienced surfers prefer to escape the crowds and head to a more secluded surf spot.
