Esterillos Oeste is a beautiful Black sand beach located only about 10 min from Del Pacifico Estate and 5 min from Del Pacifico.
Esterillos is know for being a local spot for weekenders from the inland areas of Costa Rica. It has also become a very popular spot for vacationers due to the proximity to amenities while maintaing the charm of a small fishing village.
One of Esterillos' main attractions for visitors is the Large Bronze mermaid statue that adorns the reef. On a high tide she is just visible above the waves but at low tide you can walk out on the reef and see her up close.
This reef is also wonderful for swimmers and families as during a medium tide the reef creates several very large protected tide pools that are very popular for floating and relaxing or for allowing kids time to play in the water without the danger of waves.
Esterillos has a small town center with several good restaurants and many beautiful spots to enjoy the beach below the shade of the palms or Almond trees. They also have a beach chair and umbrella service if you want to rent one.
Esterillos also has several great great surf breaks and is also a popular spot for learning. Please contact us about setting up a Surfing lesson on our Activities Page.
