Take the walk to Dantita, because the snorkeling is far better than at Danta. Furthermore, there is more privacy.

Absolutely stunning beach, loved the sand, and water, everything about it! Super secluded. Once the tide is low, you can walk along the rocks from playa danta to get to Danita. You won’t be disappointed.

Just north of Playa Danta, this little beach is a little gem if you're looking for privacy and solitude. Accessible from Danta around the rocky outcropping during low tide or take the trail over and around the hill, Dantita is worth getting to for it's...More

If you stay at Casa Chameleon, this is the closest. It was nice and peaceful. Access via Dante Beach by foot.

This is just Danta beach. Small area that you either have through walk through rocks or forrest to get to.

Beautiful quaint beach for those wanting the road less traveled. Enjoyed the grey and white sand and the rocky outcropping. Very picturesque. Not great for swimming though

This beach is just breathtaking. Truly unspoiled, remote, and pristine. Paradise. Be aware that you have to take a short hike to get there. It's not very long but it is across the hill so can be slightly challenging for some.
