If you looking for a beach spot with very little traffic, this is a great option. Clean and very peaceful.

Great beach to visit for a few hours of fun. Sand is gorgeous, ocean waves tumbling along creating great fun times for swimmers.

This is a beautiful sandy beach with very clear water, and not very crowded. And nobody trying to sell you stuff.

The Penca Beach at Playa Potrero is the kind of place I enjoy. Early in the morning you may have it all to yourself with the exception of some friendly beach dogs who stop by for a friendly pat and rubs.

Nice white sand but very hot to walk on...lovely clear water, easy to get to with golf cart or car. You need shelter from the sun

No shade, no waves, no services, no nada but trash. Go to playa Flamingo or playa Conchal, you will be much happier.

Hello! I believe you are asking for directions from Playa Hermosa in the North and in that case, take #159 South to #911 all the way! It is about an hour drive!
