The Manuel Antonio North beach is one of the most beautiful pristine beaches we have ever been to (and we’ve been to a lot of beaches!). There is a shuttle from Gaia Hotel that will take you there every hour which is super convenient. Rent chairs, umbrellas, surf board or order food/drinks at Marys which has a relationship with the hotel so you can put the charge on your room ($14 for 2 chairs, a giant water and surfboard). The sand is soft, the waves are perfect for a variety of surfing or body surfing levels. The beach is very clean and feels untouched, you will have the perfect here so enjoy it!
