Collectively known as the Costa Verde (Green Coast), the accessible beaches on the Pacific Ocean are a favorite with surfers, paragliders, and sunbathing locals. It’s an easy walk down from the hotel to enjoy a day of sun on the smooth-pebbled shores. There are several beaches in the area—some quiet, others lined with cafés, piers, and shops—and charming parks and plazas can be found between them. Redondo, Waikiki, La Pampilla, and Makaha are considered the best beaches for surfing. Note that as the closest beaches to the city, the Miraflores shores often get crowded, particularly on the weekends.
