This enormous, unspoiled coast begins a few miles outside of town, curves around Puntarenitas Point, and stretches on as far as the eye can see. Playas Pavones and Zancudo can be seen across the way, separated from the Osa Peninsula by the vast Golfo Dulce. Playa Preciosa's playful waves are perfect for surfing and bodysurfing. The best point of entry is at the Perla de Osa Restaurant, ten minutes by car or 20 by bicycle from the town center. The beach can also be reached on foot by crossing over the Platanares River at low tide. It takes about 30 minutes to walk.
