This is the place to go, when you stay a couple days in Leon, Nicaragua! A 20 min taxi ride or half an hour by bus takes you to this lovely place! You will love the sandy beaches, some great restaurants and a fresh breeze especially during the hot season.
Las penitas was a nice escape from the bustling city centre of Leon, but it was unfortunate the weather was awful. We tried to make the best and go on a kayak trip through the mangroves. It's a small little beach with brown sand, canoes and a few restaurants/hostels. Has a backpacker vibe to it. Not sure I'd go back,... 更多
We went to this beach for lunch on a Sunday. It was not crowded and the day was clear and hot. Plenty of waves for surfers and tons of shells to collect. I would not recommend swimming since the waves and currents are strong. Wading is fine and the rock formations are nice to take pictures of. The sand is... 更多
Beautiful sandy beach 20 minutes' drive from León. A gradual entry into the sea. Sea pleasantly warm. Waves. A number of nice restaurants with refreshments and a hearty lunch. Fresh fish and seafood.
Lovely location but a bit shabby. The beaches were very quiet and almost deserted. The sea is popular with surfers and not really recommended for swimming. The tips were strong! Beautiful shells to be collected along the shore line. Pelicans flying in formation make this a special place.

Nice beach to visit for the views and sunset. We don't surf so that didn't appeal to us. Water was difficult to swim in with the strong current so we avoided swimming while we were there.
2 English girls - we went to playa las penitas on Wednesday 5th may. It was dead - a lot of bars closed, shops closed, and not a lot of people. Disappointing for our one beach day. The beach is also a dirty brown colour with camouflaged dog poo.
Just spent two lovely nights in Las Penitas at Simple Beach Lodge. The beach is very nice with soft sand and waves suitable for surfers and swimmers alike. There aren't a lot of tourists there at the moment, so many of the restaurants are closed. Despite the few open options, we really enjoyed dinners at El Barco de Oro and... 更多
A beautiful beach and quiet beach less than 30 minutes from downtown Leon. If you are looking to relax and surf instead of drink and disco, this beach will suit.
