This is an urban beach, is the largest beach in the heart of San Jose, unlike most beaches in the park, that are virgins,in this beach you will find all kinds of services such as access for the disabled, toilets, showers, bars, restaurants, lifeguards, goals for football and beachfront accommodations.
This is a large beach, 850 meters of longer, with fine sand and a fairly high level of occupation. In the same village we find other small coves where taking a bath, but it is very small beaches and they are filled quickly.
On the left side of the beach there are a couple of booths where we can rent kayaks. Also, here you can hire a guided kayak route. The guide route will take you to the north to see the cliff area of the friars, only visible from the water, Cala Higuera, you will pass also, by Cala Punta de la Higuera, and the cave of snuff. Also during the route you will enter with your canoe into a cave to see different species of coral. This place has the comprehensive marine reserve area of Punta de Loma Pelada, a place where the variety of fish and aquatic life is spectacular. If you will do the kayak route is advisable to take diving goggles because it makes a short stop for snorkeling, and receive information of the different types of fish that are observable.
Another option is to visit Cala Higuera, this is a beach near the center of San José, in the north, and if you have available a car is an interesting visit because it is a beach outside the town and where we can swim with the attraction of being surrounded by nature. This cove is located at the foot of the hill of La Higuera, which is crowned by an ancient watchtower. To get there we must take the road to the left at the first roundabout at the entrance to San Jose, from that roundabout the beach is over 2 kilometers.
