A Rocky Headland at Playa Penca separates Playa Danta from Playa Pan de Azúcar (Sugar Beach). They all are located near Flamingo and Potrero Beach about 4 km from Brasilito. Playa Danta is a short beach of less than 1 km, but its white sand is exceptionally beautiful. Laying at the foot of a coastal range of volcanic rock that dates from the Tertiary Era 60-80 million years ago. At Guapelines and Penca Points the slopes drop steeply and form cliffs between which flow seasonal streams.

One can walk along the entire coastline and admire the marine life. The Pitahayas Islets, which measure 0.75 hectares and lie just off the coast, can be seen from the Danta beach to the west. Beyond them rise the Santa Catalina Island, which has 19 hectares and lies 4 km to the southwest, near Salinas Point.
