Fodor's Review

Beyond the Atlántida Lodge, Playa Negra’s black sand lightens to a dark brown. Whether this constitutes a separate beach or not is open for debate, but the lodgings out here distinguish their stretch of sand as “Playa Grande.” You’re much farther from town here; the beach feels even more isolated. Do be careful. As with all beaches on this coast, the undertow makes swimming risky. Amenities: none. Best for: sunrise; walking.
