Our Beaches & Views
Arenas Del Mar has the great fortune of being situated on two unparalleled
beaches: Playa Espadilla and Playitas Beach, which are contiguous
with the property of the hotel.
Playa Espadilla is the stunning beach on the south side of the grounds
with natural rock outcroppings protecting warm tide pools and where
tropical shore birds are seen roosting.
Arenas Del Mar offers four buildings with apartments, suites and
superior rooms which sit 150 feet above the aquamarine water below
with stunning views out to Manuel Antonio National Park. In these
rooms you can relax on the outside terrace while watching and listening
to the glorious panorama of the waves breaking below.
Playitas Beach is a spectacular but cozy beach on the north side
of the grounds which ends at Punta Quepos, a peninsula of primary
forest and beautiful rock formations. This beach used to be a European-style,
clothing optional beach before we began the project and although
very uncommon, you may still see some “au natural” bathing at the
far end of the beach. However, we are asking that all beach goers
wear bathing suits in accordance with the law of Costa Rica.
