Playa Prieta, Costa Rica
Playa Prieta is a 400-meter long white sand beach with crystal blue, calm waters, ideal for swimming, sunbathing, fishing and diving. Although tiny, it is well known as one of the most beautiful beaches in Guanacaste. Apart from magnificent sunsets, it has a wonderful view of Flamingo Bay, and is only 5 km from Flamingo where a wide variety of tourist activities, restaurants and nightlife is centered. The rocky headlands and small islands that separate Playa Prieta from Playa Penca to the south and Sugar Beach to the north make this beach a truly picturesque spot. Private vacation rentals in this area range from small honeymooners hideaway to large estate villas and hilltop homes with stunning oceanview.
