Wild beautiful beach almost untouched by human being. Spectacular sunsets and panoramic view on the mountains. In front of Villas Gaia
It is nice beach for walking. Swimming not advisable as it is near the mouth where the river enters the ocean. Dangerous undertows and turbulence.
To the north is a rock cliff and the Tortuga River and south you see the Balso River and beach until the Terraba River.
Playa Tortuga beach is an olive ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea) nesting beach.
