Playa Ventanas, a beautiful beach in Costa Ballena, South Pacific Costa Rica
Playa Ventanas in Osa, Costa Ballena gets its name for its caves (they resemble a window). During the low tide, you can walk through them, and see the waves breaking inside the cave. During the high tide, the powerful body of water will shoot spray out of the mouth of the cave. It is a good surfing spot for beginners and when there is a big swell it's a good spot for advanced surfers.
The amazing caves of Playa Ventanas are natural formations; at low tide, you can explore into the wet shadowy cavern, enjoying the giant tub of whirling warm water and its alluring echo.
At high tide, depending on the volume of the surge, powerful water jets are expelled from the caves with such force the water turns into a fine mist.
It has a breathtaking view, the sand is fine with enough shade under palm trees on both ends of the beach there are huge boulders covered with lush vegetation that extends to the sea.
The beach is relatively safe for swimming, and moderate waves are appealing to beginner surfers. At low tide, you can walk to the south end where the river coming from the mountain becomes a fun play area for children because of its shallow waters.
You might want to bring your cooler for a picnic and spend the day in harmony with nature. For your convenience, there are showers and toilets at the entrance to the property.
