The main beach of Manuel Antonio, the beach north of the national park, usually has nothing to offer for surfers.

On a common day there are only some beginners out in the small closeout waves. Playitas is located to the North in walking distance. The waves are much better here and break to the left and to the right. The best surfing conditions are during mid tide, the bottom is rocky.
