At Playa Conchal, so called for the many conchas (shells) that pile up on the beach, the sand is made up of millions of crushed shells that constitute a rare environment. Conchal is also the most common name given to a pretty sweep of bay beginning about 2 km south of Brasilito. The clear water makes for nice snorkeling.
Many swimmers and sunbathers believe that Playa Conchal is the most beautiful beach on the entire Pacific Coast for its sand, water and views to the northern coast. Playa Brasilito and Conchal make up a unit separated by the rock headlands of Punta Conchal.
