Fodor's Review

Not so secret Secret Beach, as Pata Prieta is also known, is a heavenly cove for those seeking privacy. This tiny yet beautiful horseshoe-shaped stretch of sand, reached via a brambling dirt road, is calm and secluded. You can find yourself completely alone, or one of a few couples embracing in the crystal clear water. Relish the unadulterated bliss of this perfect spot, an Eden like no other. Amenities: none. Best for: snorkeling, swimming.
