Blanca Beach Cahuita

Blanca Beach Cahuita

This beach is part of the Cahuita National Park and it is named for the color of its sand. It is about 3 kilometers long going from the entrance to Cahuita Point. It is not a broad beach and it drops sharply and has strong waves. For this reason, swimming is not recommended here. Towards the middle area of this beach, right before reaching the Suarez River, it is perfect for swimming. After one crosses the creek, the presence of the outer edge of the fringing reef transfomars this whole area into a huge lake. At the point, the sands area lighter in color and the reef is very close so it can be visited by divers. Otherwise one can continue on for two kilometers further to Puerto Viejo of Talamanca.
