Pipa’s Beach Restaurant

Top choice seafood

in Farallón & Playa Blanca

Love, love, love this mostly outdoor bar and restaurant right by the beach and serving seafood with gourmet touches (such as Thai mussels and crab claws in three sauces). One of the delights of dining here is enjoying a cold beer or tropical cocktail while looking out to sea, feet buried in the sand and sometimes washed by the surf.

The service is friendly and efficient and those taking advantage of the beach can shower and rent thatched beach shelters (US$10 to US$20, depending on size) to escape the sun. Pipa's is at the very end of the road through Farallón, about 4km from the Interamericana.
