Welcome to Playas Avellanas & Negra

Playa Avellanas is an absolutely stunning pristine sweep of pale golden sand. Backed by mangroves in the center and with two gentle hillsides on either end, it has plenty of room for surfers and sunbathers to have an intimate experience even when there are lots of heads in town.

Playa Negra is also undeniably romantic. Though the sand is a bit darker and the beach is broken up by rocky outcrops, gorgeous dusty back roads link tide pools of expat shredders who picked this place to exist (and surf) peacefully. Though there isn't much local soul here, the beach itself is a beaut.
