Fodor's Review

Just east of Playa Grande, Playa Preciosa (formerly Playa Navio) is a local favorite due to its beauty. You have to descend a sandy bank to reach the completely open beach, which has excellent conditions for break surfing. These same conditions can make for some dangerous currents, so be extremely careful of undertows and riptides when swimming here. There are no lifeguards, so don't go in alone. It is nearly deserted on weekdays, and the views are stunning. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; surfing; walking.
