4 Best Beaches for Sailing in Nicaragua

Aug 13, 2021

When you think of Nicaragua, you should picture some of the best beaches in the entire world. It’s no wonder this area is so popular for tourists looking to sail in the blue water and lay on an exotic beach!

San Juan del Sur is a fun, beachside party town surrounded by excellent surfing beaches and mountains that carve out an unforgettable coastal view on Nicaragua’s southwest coast. You don’t want to stay in town the whole time, though. Esmeralda Sailing is a chartered catamaran boat that provides a unique sailing experience through the area of Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. The boat is docked in San Juan del Sur. From there, you can take a half- or full-day trip to exotic destinations and the region’s top beaches. These include:

Playa Blanca

One of the nearest beaches, and also one of the best is Playa Blanca. It is a mere hour from San Juan del Sur, just four nautical miles north. It is only able to be reached by boat, so it is very exclusive. If you are looking for white sand and crystal clear water, this is the place to go.

Isla Anciana

Isla Anciana is located two hours from San Juan del Sur, eight nautical miles north. It is known for the biodiversity of migratory and perennial birds in the area. You can get off the boat and take a tour of the island in order to fully experience the area’s extraordinarily diverse topography.

Playa Brasilito

Heading South instead, you can go to Playa Brasilito. It is located just two hours of sailing away. You may be able to get an up-close view of turtles! This area is home to turtle nests. Turtles appear annually to lay their eggs, between June to September.

Playa Trébol

Just a few minutes from the border with Costa Rica, you will find Playa Trébol. While it may be a little further out of the way, it is well worth the hours it takes to get there! It is actually made up of three unspoiled beaches that form a cloverleaf and boast incredible nature.

You are certainly looking forward to your destination, but getting there is half the fun! As you sail on our catamaran, you can fish, watch for whales, dance to music, get a massage, do yoga, or simply soak in the sun. Once you arrive, we provide boogie boards, balls, beach towels, and other essentials to enjoy these top-rated beaches.
