Idyllic white sand and calm waters make Playa Mansa a perfect choice for a relaxing beach day. Relatively small crowds add to this beach's appeal, leaving you to enjoy the warm water with a long swim, or soak up the view with a walk along the boardwalk. If you're looking for more adventure, rent water sports equipment for kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, and canoeing. A number of restaurants and cafes serving local specialties allow you refuel without getting too far away from the water. The only downside to this spot is the jellyfish, which can pose a problem during certain times.
