Amapas Beach

Located at the end of Los Muertos beach.  It is a small and relatively quiet beach, protected by the shade of the Amapas trees (native trees of the area, up to 50 feet high) and the rock formations that reach into the sea, forming a small cove.

Playa las amapas

Access to Amapas Beach is moderately difficult.  At the southern end of Playa Los Muertos, a few feet away from the sculpture "The Boy on the Seahorse", you will find some steps built on a slope that will take you to the top of the hill known by the locals as "El Púlpito" (The Pulpit).  Once there, descend with great caution.  The slope of the path is rocky and uneven.

Down the hill, thick amber sand awaits.  The intense emerald waters are a delight for experienced swimmers.  At Playa Amapas, the shore of the beach is usually rocky with a drag of shells and other mollusks.  Waves are usually mild to moderate.  Please note that there are no lifeguards on duty.

We recommend stopping at Playa Amapas before walking along the seafront path past villas and luxury condominiums to your next stop: the notorious Conchas Chinas beach.
