Playa Los Cocos
Just 8 miles (13 kilometers) south of San Blas on the road to Santa Cruz is the beautiful beach of Playa Los Cocos. Bordered by a large coconut palm grove, the beach extends north, curving gradually northwest to Playa Matanchen and leading into Playa Las Islitas. Another great place to surf, the ocean water is usually warm with soft golden sand, although the beach is eroding into a rocky shore from periodically heavy waves. Still, this long gold beach and deep blue sea with distant mountain views and tropical plants is breathtaking.
