Driving Directions From Playa Grande to Conchal, Brasilito or Playa Flamingo
1. From Frijoles Locos Surf Shop, take a right at the school to leave Playa Grande.
2. After 7-8 minutes you will arrive in Matapalo. There is a soccer field here. Take a right at the stop sign when you see the soccer field.
Follow this paved road for around 5 minutes until you pass by the large hardware store called BAQUORE on your right. Immediately after this, is a LEFT hand turn off towards Flamingo, Conchal, Brasilito.
3. Take this left turn here.
Follow this road along, passing by Reserva Conchal/ Westin on your left, over a one lane bridge which is Brasilito. To get to Playa Conchal, take the immediate left after the bridge. Pass by El Oasis Restaurant on your left, and you will see the beach on your right. If it is low tide, you can drive along the beach to the next beach south, which is Playa Conchal.
4. If you are going to Flamingo, continue straight instead of taking the left just after the bridge…. go through Brasilito, take a sharp right opposite Cameron Dorado (a restaurant on the left hand side) to continue on this paved road. If you end up on dirt road, you went straight when you should have gone right.
Stay on this paved road all the way until you see the next beach, which will be on your right… this is Flamingo Bay, and if you continue along the same road, you will get to Flamingo Beach.
Mar y Sol restaurant is a must visit for sunset cocktails and dinner… to find it, you take a right up the steep hill beside the commercial center which is between Flamingo Bay and Flamingo Beach. Head straight up the steep hill passing by Flamingo Marina Resort, and Mar y Sol is on the right hand side around 2 minutes drive past this.
