Playa Biesanz, Manuel Antonio

Beach · Nature / Park
Venture off the beaten path as you step onto the cream-colored sand of Playa Biesanz. The beach is small and secluded, reached by a short trail through tropical rainforest. The trail begins at a small break in a fence between hotels Shana and Parador. Shade trees border the beach, where you can read a book or just admire the view. Go snorkeling in the clear waters, or kayak offshore to go exploring. A nearby submerged rock is known for being a good snorkeling spot.

  • A gem of a beach, hidden away from most of the tourists in Manuel Antoino. The beach is calm and the waves are slight. It is pretty and a little rocky, but a nice place to visit.
  • Beautiful beach!. 15 min walk from our hotel. The walk to he beach is extremely hilly. If you are not in shape to walk it there are a ton of taxis driving around. Left side of the water is VERY Rocky. Bring water shoes or move to the other side. Medium sized waves and shallow for 50 yards out
