Playa Espadilla is the main beach at the end of the main road through Manuel Antonio, and the most popular with tourists.
The western edge is bordered by the Manuel Antonio National Park, making that end a gorgeous spot.
However the majority of gay tourists gather at the opposite end, in front of the surfing area.
This beach can get very busy on weekends and holidays and there are often a few peddlers to sell you drinks and snacks, but make sure to bring supplies as well.
Playa La Macha is the most secluded and private beach in the Manuel Antonio region, and many people decide to let loose here.
Since the opening of a hotel on Playa Playitas, Playa La Macha has taken over as the best gay nude beach.
The path to this beach can be quite difficult, reviewers describe a tricky 20 minute hike from the town.
This is one of Manuel Antonio’s lesser known beaches so don’t expect a big crowd, but you might meet a few fellow gay tourists here.
Playa Playitas is a gay beach in the Manuel Antonio region.
This beach is just around the cove from Playa Espidalla, the main beach at the end of Calles Principal. At the western side, go around the cove at low tide and you’ll find Playa Playitas.
Playitas is a gay hotspot and regular hangout, as it is slightly more secluded than the Playa Espidalla. Gay tourists tend to gather at the far end.
This beach used to be clothing optional, but the recent construction has changed this to Playa La Macha, see our page for more info.
