Playa Penca is a very tranquil and beautiful beach stretching along a small cove, just a few kilometres away from the garish lighting and incessant noise. Playa Penca is a small, secluded cove which nestles demurely in between the resort of Las Catalinas and Playa Flamingo. Bordered on either side by rocky points and jungle, this white sanded beach gets little waves, making it a peaceful place to swim, picnic, and play in the sand. It's one of the well kept secret by the locals that love going there to rest and enjoy the beautiful sunsets!
It is the closest beach of the Pacific Heights community, featuring luxury ocean view and mountain view homes. The properties at Pacific Heights overlooks Playa Penca, Playa Prieta, Playa Potrero and Playa Azucar, three secluded and pristine coves that offer outstanding swimming and snorkeling. Some lots offer wonderful views of the Costa Rican forest with tropical trees, flowers, animals and birds.
