Welcome to Playa Pan de Azúcar
Although buses stop at Potrero, travelers with their own ride can continue 3km north on a paved road to ‘Sugar-Bread Beach,' named for the strip of sugary white sand that’s protected at both ends by rocky headlands. This is one of the most scenic stretches of road in all of northern Costa Rica, as dry rugged cliffs sheer down into aquamarine coves sheltered by offshore islets. The ocean here is calm, clear and perfect for snorkeling. The remote location – and the lack of cheap accommodations – create an atmosphere of total seclusion.
