Best beach in the area for families for boogie boarding, surfing, playing on a long flat beach and exploring tide pools. A few shady spots with palm trees to hang out when you need a break from the sun.

Me and my girlfriend are visiting Costa Rica. We were switching air b n b s and stopped for 1 hour at Playa Hermosa. We parked close to the entrance and when we got back all our items were stolen: MacBook, drone DJ mini, Semi professional camera and more. We are devastated. We don’t recommend family’s and couples going there or even parking there.

This beach is a MUST when visiting Santa Teresa. If you are looking for waves and for a palm tree to relax after your session, this is the spot. Walking to the North, natural pools can be found in low tide. Take water and fruit with you, there is no restorant at the beach! Two parking available, South and North!

Loved this beach. Bf is a surfer and best place for waves too. Also if you are learning to surf, best beach so far.

Playa Hermosa was just what we were looking for- a beautiful beach with clean water, soft sand, miles of beach to walk in both directions, tide pools and beautiful sunsets. Lots of surf schools at this beach- so I think it is safer than Santa Teresa beach, and for sure less crowded.

This place was amazing!! Make sure you go during low tide and just wait to be dazzled by the array of fish. We saw puffer fish, octopus, eels, sea urchin, moorish idol, cornet fish, .... and more. Bring water shoes as getting out to the tide pool can be hard on the feet.

My favorite beach! They sell ceviche in the parking lot, along with coconut milk that's good. The waves are great and not to rough. We love to watch the sunsets here as well.

I felt most comfortable at this beach with my kids. The waves didn't seem as strong and crazy like at playa Carmen or Santa Teresa. We paid the parking lot guy the $2. We also ate at Colours Cafe just up the street - yum. A great beach.

This is a must see location just north of Tamarindo, beautiful beach, warm water. Nothing to complain about but easy living.

Visited this beach at low tide. Was a bit rocky, but nice tide pools. Plenty of shade for those who needed a break from the sun.
