Beautiful beach

Beautiful beautiful beach. I've been around Costa Rica and It was one of the greatest beaches I've visited. Ideal surfing for beginners. Nice sunsets.

The waves are great for all levels. The beach spreads a few kilometers and entice you for walking (along with about a dozen dogs along the way).

Even though Santa Teresa is not too pretty, it has a stunning beach and the most beautiful sunsets you can dream off. Suring the day the beach is not very crowdy (apart from some surfers) due to the heat, but as the sun sets, all the people relax at the beach and enjoy the spectacle.

Great surfing beach - a lot of small restaurants along the beach to grab some lunch or dinner and of course a few cold ones!

A beautiful clean sandy beach lined with trees where you can easily spend the day in the sun, the shade or the surf. Lots of outfits nearby offer lessons to get you up on a board as the swells are gentle and the water stays shallow for a fair distance. Santa Teresa itself is a great place to stay with... More

Not much to say other other than this must surely be surf heaven! Waves are consistent and uncrowded. Water is warm enough to just wear board shorts. Suck rock end of the beach is my favorite in front of Rocamar but honestly anywhere along the beach is fantastic

Choices, choices, choices. Weather you are looking for great surfing, beautiful white sand beaches to play in or tide pools to sit in and stare at the sky and wait for the world to go by, playa Santa Teresa delivers all. Even during high season you can find spots along the beach where you can be relatively alone. The further... More

Such a stunning beach, great for surf (especially beginners) and swimming. Beware of the rip currents!

Clean beach with incredible surfing. An interesting thing to note, every Saturday evening (before sunset) there's a farmers market near Habeneros, that sells very fresh fruit / coffee / snacks / home-made jewelry, for very fair prices. Definitely worth checking out. Hope this helps! GK
