The many beaches in Nicaragua are popular for a variety of reasons. Some are favored by surfers while others for their windsurfing conditions. Still others are known for their lively resort environment where holiday makers gather each holiday season to relax and unwind from the stresses of life. If you’re pursuing some specific hobby or sport whilst in the country, we recommend that you research which beaches will serve you best as there are so many to choose from.
You can find all kinds of beaches, from white sand to dark sand, virgin beaches and exotic one. Nicaragua´s coastline stretches out for 755 kilometers in which 305 km correspond to the Pacific Coast and 450 km to the Caribbean Coast.
The main beaches along Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast are Montelimar, San Juan del Sur, La Flor, La Boquita,Pochomil, El Velero and Las Penitas. However these are certainly not the only beaches available. Some are closely guarded surfing secrets while others are somewhat rocky and not generally enjoyed by swimmers and sunbathers. Virtually every town along the Pacific Coast features its own little beach.
The western or Caribbean Coast is not as well suited to cater for tourism, but offers some unparalleled opportunities to enjoy the wonders of nature. Largely untouched by modern development, you will be able to experience beautiful coral reefs, crystal clear waters and a brush with the locals. The Caribbean coast is picture perfect with the classic turquoise sea, white sand beaches and perfectly placed palm trees, the ideal getaway.
