Grande Beach (Playa Grande) is separated from the area of Tamarindo by the Matapalo River situated within Marino Las Baulas National Park. It is famously known as the home to the well-protected leatherback turtles and is the perfect spot to engage in water sports such as surfing.

The leatherback turtles usually come to the Playa Grande’s shore in order to lay their eggs. However, during the year 2008, the species drastically declined where it was then strictly protected by the locals and the State. The turtle’s nesting periods are from October to May making it the perfect months to visit Playa Grande and witness this very rare opportunity to see how nature takes its course.

Most surfer enthusiasts love to visit this magnificent spot for water sports. Playa Grande have been described by visitors as a worthy break for anyone who is so full of the city life.

Surfing along Playa Grande is the most incredible experience that you can enjoy here aside from coming in contact with the leatherback turtles. Many skilled surfers have definitely passed through here and some even descended in Playa Grande to develop their skills in the sport. Breaks of the waves are moderate and constant which made the beach earn the reputation of being the top site in Costa Rica to go surfing.
