Living at Avellanas Beach

Life at Playa Avellanas

Easily described as one of the most beautiful beaches in the Tamarindo area, Avellanas boasts pristine beach wilderness with stretches of rocky tide pools and other areas of white power sand. There is no native village or shops within Avellanas, and it hosts only a few easy-going hotels, cabanas, and surfer retreats. Visit the local favorite bar, Lola’s, named one of AOL’s top beach bars in 2011, and spend the day drinking tropical drinks, fresh smoothies, and cold beers.


Most visitors to Avellanas are not as interested in the attractions onshore as the surf conditions are nearly perfect throughout the entire year, drawing surfers to visit from all over the world. With several breaks to choose from, there is something for everyone. Swells approach the coast from both Northern and Southern Hemispheres, meaning surf conditions will vary from one area of the beach to the other.
