The beach was virtually empty ! No crowds of tourists and the water clean and fresh. Sand was hot and sparkly. Walked up and down numerous times and saw very few people but more of the wildlife.

thousands of dragonflies in the skys above us, Crashing surf, sea fishermen. Lovely views and only a short walk from our air b&b. Children playing in the water but not our responsibility to watch them!

Was within walking distance of the place we were staying at and was decent (good enough for a bit of sand and water)

We spent three days in Potrero. The only thing that stopped us from being a five-star experience was the sand color. It sounds like a ridiculous thing to criticize, but the brown sand although very soft, almost resembles mud. Other than that, there are some wonderful restaurants in the area, And if you have a car, it is fun to go to Playa flamingo and up to the high-end restaurants in Las Catalinas. We truly enjoyed our stay.

We recently spent a week in Potrero, CR and it was wonderful! We rented a beach front property via Casa Equity and the villa was beautiful, clean and perfect location. We also hired Chef Estafania: privatehomecookingservice.com which was absolutely fantastic. Estafania and her husband, Luis was both professional and friendly. They made delicious breakfast and dinners where we expanded our palates. Our highlight was the tuna!! I still have dreams about how delicious it was. We highly recommend hiring Chef Estafania if you want good food with excellent service! We miss her and Luis very much!!

Potrero is a great playa! Remote but with plenty of services. Gorgeous sunsets. Totally laid back atmosphere. Highly recommend.

We’ve stayed on Potrero Beach multiple times at Bahia del Sol & beach front condos. From the first time we visited until present our breath is taken away each time we arrive. The beach is absolutely breathtaking. The view of the Catalina Islands gives one an intense feeling of peace. Very calm and relaxing. No it is not a white sand beach but the water is beautifully clear, just not crystal clear because of the sand color. The beach is clean, quiet, safe for swimming, paddling, & other activities. Can’t wait to be back there. I anticipate vacationing here for the rest of my life my heart breaks at the thought of not seeing it again. Truly that is how magnificent it is

Actually I was sent here to an dive shop. But the shop is closed already.
This part of the long beach has dark grey sand. The are no infrastructure like shops, bars or restaurants.
There are no people. So if you’re looking for a beach for yourself, that’s the place to be, maybe.
