Playa Ancon

As we have a car it was a quick 10min drive out of Trinidad to Playa Ancon beach. The water was nice and warm, the beach was big with plenty of room for everyone.

Driving from Trinidad

The drive out to Playa Ancon Beach from Trinidad is an easy 10 mins on a good road. We did pass people riding out there on bikes, which would have taken around an hour I would say and in the hot sun, pretty hard going.

For some strange reason there are 2 roads that kind of run paralell with each other along the coast to Playa Ancon beach.

Parking

We got to a beach before the main beach, it had a few beach chairs with parking you had to pay for. I must say this little beach looked really nice.

We carried on down the road until we got to the big hotel and found some free parking to the side of this. The hotel looked really rundown and shabby, it was actually closed but the guys reckoned it would be up and going again in a month, I don’t think it will be any better.

Beach Experience

The beach is pretty big and there was plenty of room although not much undercover out of the sun, well not unless you want to pay for a beach chair.

I went for a swim, it was lovely and warm but the water was not clear at all, I thought the beach before the main Ancon Beach was much better.

Nearby Food

There were a couple of outdoor restaurants close to the beach, but they looked a bit dodgy.

Our Opinion

If you have your own car then it’s an easy drive out to have a look an maybe stop at the first beach. We weren’t very impressed with the main Ancon Beach, the water was not clear at all.
