Playa Grande (Grande Beach) has turned into a model for surfers all over the world thanks to its sea currents, which create perfect waves for professional surfers. Water currents in Tamarindo Bay can be very dangerous, so it is not advisable for families due to its depth and strong sea currents.

Playa Grande is located in Las Baulas Marine National Park, and it can only be visited during the day, because the beach has turned into leatherback sea turtles and kemp’s ridley sea turtles nesting area; both species are protected and admired by locals.
