Playa Avellana is a popular surfing beach. Avellana is a long stretch of white sand about 15 km south of Tamarindo by road, but closer to 10 km if you walk in along the beaches, about 5 km to the north of Playa Negra, north of Playa Junquillal. Watch for signs to Cabinas Las Olas.

Information for Surfers:
Here you'll find both left and right breaks, 8 different surf breaks, reef, sand or beach breaks with rocky points and a good beach break called 'Guanacasteco' with very hollow rights and lefts, along a three kilometer long stretch of beach. Surfing is best at mid or high tides
