Nicaragua's BeachesCan you feel yourself on the beaches in Nicaragua, balancing on the board, riding where the surf breaks hard and fast, salt spray in your face and the sun beating down on you? If so, your spot is San Diego Beach at Gran Pacificia Resort, where surfs are commonly compared to those in Bali.

High tide surfing is challenging, but San Diego Beach offers surfing for all levels. If it has been a while since you have tasted the freedom, or you are a first-time surfer, then you can warm up with lessons on this beach. If you do not surf but you love to watch surfing while you walk the beach, this is where the most surfing action is. The beach is 3.5 miles of white sand, so you will never feel crowded. Check out the action yourself, and then imagine yourself in the picture.

One of the Most Popular Beaches is San Juan del Sur

San Juan del Sur, a very popular beach for locals and tourists, is about a 90 minute drive from Granada and almost on the border with Costa Rica. You have to see the black sand to believe it. People from all over Central America come to San Juan del Sur, which can make it a bit crowded at times. In addition to surfing, you can go scuba diving and fishing.

La Flor Beach Nature Preserve

South of San Juan del Sur is La Flor. Nicaragua beaches are amazingly bio-diverse, and La Flor is not only a great place to swim; it is the renowned home of Olive Ridley sea turtles. The turtles come to La Flor by the thousands to lay their eggs, and you can watch as those baby turtles hatch and shimmy right into the sea. Your best chances of seeing that event are between July and January. Be aware that part of the way to La Flor is a dirt road, which is good, but you could use a high-clearance vehicle.

So Many Nicaragua Beaches, So Little Time

You will discover so many interesting Nicaragua beaches that you will want to come again to revisit your favorites and to discover new ones. If the beautiful beach bug bites you hard, and you have totally fallen in love with Nicaragua, then there is only one sure cure: Move here.
