Minas Beach, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

playa minas guanacaste

Another unknown top white sand beach

Known as Minas, Mina or Zapotillal beach, it is an exotic and unknown white sand beach. It is close to the paradise of Conchal beach, perhaps due to its difficult exclusive access for 4x4s and the stingrays and shingles that swim in its waters, its visitation and popularity has been reduced. It is a beach also chosen by the black turtle to bury its eggs.

In short, it is a scenic paradise of flora and fauna, with good shade and little influx, its beautiful colors, very white sand and sea between blue and green, it is a privileged place to vacation, taking the necessary precautions.
