WARNING. Came here to surf with a buddy. I’m a beginner surfer and while my friend was giving me a few pointers on the board we were approached by a man who said no one could “teach” on this beach without paying. He threatened us both with physical harm to ourselves and our property. We reported him and the locals said that is a problem and self-proclaimed “king of the beach”. With so many great surfing spots in Nicaragua, it’s easy to avoid this one

Perfect place to camp on the beach! There is a security guard named Luis, you can ask him for a shower (30c). Good place to bath and surf, we stayed 3 nights and enjoyed a lot!

Super super spot! You can wild camp in front of the beach, great sunsets. You can set up a fire at night. During the day it’s full of people surfing and chilling at the beach, and after 6 pm is deserted and you have it all for you! If you rent a surfboard at the bar right on the beach they let you use the shower/toilet for free.

Place is great and beautiful, full of surfers and amazing sunsets. However, we had a terrible experience one night.

There's a guy, (for reference: looks like he's in his mid thirties, has dreads and a moon & sun tattoo on his right arm) who lives here (next to the brick oven) and came screaming on our third night telling us to leave. He broke our chairs and table, also threatened to blow up our camper. Said he didn't like for people to camp "on his side of the land".

Wish he would have kindly told us this days before so we could have moved. We left the next morning.

Do not camp between Tacos Locos
and Maderas Sunset bar in rainy season. A river forms there when it rains hard. If we had parked 2m further north our van would have been swept away and become part of the beach like a shipwreck.

Recommend you to camp on the bigger area on the South side of the beach next to 3 hermanos.

Great spot right on the beach with shade and sun. Perfect spot to watch the surf and play with dogs. Three restaurants down on the beach, but I recommend going up the little goat track up to hush hotel. They have an amazing view, pool, yoga, and great food and cocktails. Happy hour ends at 4 FYI. Don't miss this spot! The beach is so beautiful!

Very nice lovely beach. Camping is free, enough space for big rigs also. Very good spot for surfing. Lots of surfers daytime. We stayed there 3 nights never alone, there were other campers here two. You can get electricity from the restaurant for $5/day. There is a possibility to use shower and toilet for $1. Everyone is very helpful, we had great time there with 4 kids.

Stayed here for free right on the beach. Very quiet at night. Nearby bar and hostel have security at night so maybe that can reassure some. Can also stay at the studio bar for 10 if you need power. Great beach to visit and surf! As you drive up to the beach bars, go right and there is a large parking area.

Sao 5 bares/restaurantes. Estacionamos ao lado de Los 3 Hermanos (tb hotel), perguntamos e nos responderam que ok pernoitar ao lado. Studio Cafe e Tacos têm wifi, que não chegamos a usar. Um pouco de lixo espalhado, um pouco de sombra, por do sol lindo. Ficamos 3 dias! Nosso filho, de 8 anos, fez aula de surf por 5 dolares (seria 1h20, mas talvez pelo desconto foi só meia hora) e alugamos a prancha por US$ 10. O valor inicial do pacote era $30.

Perfect spot right on the beach, the road to come here has been reshaped last week. We had no issue to come here with our 24’ rv.
the ‘Maderas sunset bar’ kindly let us stay for free behind the restaurant on their car park.

We stayed two night in front of the beach on the left side. Next to the parking lot but almost on the beach. Nobody bother us. Good WiFi from sunset & cafe restaurant

It's not possible to camp here, we stayed over night in our van then the owner of the tent/camp spot, José, rocked up in the morning and told us to move on. We will camp at the restaurant behind instead for $5. Would have loved free camping as it's so quiet and loved watching the waves through our bed window

Camped here for free after a day of surf. Beautiful spot to watch the sunset. We backed our vanagon up to face the ocean when we slept. Went to studio bar for showers which were $1 US per person. Very steep rocky dirt road to get here but our vanagon did it without 4x4. Great spot?

We camped here for free right on the beach, the owner didn't mind at all. Beautiful spot, camped here for a few nights before crossing the border. No facilities but you could pay to use the restaurants if needed.
