This wide beach offers calm Pacific Ocean waters in the heart of San Juan del Sur. The sandy beach, mostly for tourists (as the locals tend to visit more secluded beaches), is lined with restaurants and shops. The giant Christ of the Mercy statue sits high on the hill above, overlooking the beach. You will want to bring your own beach chairs or towels to sit on, or you can sit at one of the restaurants and enjoy a meal.
San Juan del Sur Beach is great for long walks at sunset or beachfront meals. But if you’re looking for a traditional beach where you can play in the sand all day, head to Playa Hermosa.
Street parking is available.
