Amazing, quiet beach - seems like a lot of locals go here. Great place to surf and relax all day long. Went back multiple times! Easy to get to and parking available

Great surfing. Thanks for the lessons Nalu surf shop! Spent two days here in March and the entire family learned to surf at Playa Hermosa.

Beautiful, wide, soft sand, not busy, easy access.

At low tide, some fun tide pools and rocks to explore off to the North.

Surf is low enough for beginners.

Parking area where "contributions" are requested. Take a 1 mil note with you and you won't have a problem.

The wide, white sand beaches are beautiful. Shade can be found in the jungle trees at the edge of the beach, and you should definitely try the ceviche sold by the gentleman in the parking lot. You need a taxi or other form of transportation to access the beach from Santa Teresa. Overall, a magical day!
