Playa Avellanas is excellent for surfing and popular with locals, and connects with other nearby beaches all along the coast so you can walk as far as Tamarindo – some ten kilometres away – on foot in the soft, pale sand. The water is shallow and also good for swimming, and there are shady places to sit and enjoy a drink at the bar between the palm trees.
