The tiny but exceptionally beautiful beaches of Islita and Corozalito are located between Camaronal Beach to the west and Bejuco Beach to the east. The terrain is composed of hills of volcanic origin , deep river canyons and steep cliffs.
The pounding surf that battles the coast has formed abraded cliffs and platforms where at low tide there are tidal pools and exposed rocks that serve as temporary shelter for brightly coloured fish, sea urchins, nerites, chitons, choras, caricacos and other invertebrates.
Islita and Corozalito Beach are separated by towering cliffs of volcanic rock that are 80 million years old and constantly sculpted by the sea. Islita, 1 km long, lies in a small cove watered by two streams that form tiny esturaries (suitable for bathing in the summer). Corozalito is larger (1.5 kms) and has an estuary, an almost full-grown mangrove swamp and fresh water, even during the dry season.
