“Beautiful beach with few people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The views are like something out of a film! Lovely white sand, clear blue water, rainforests and cliffs in the background. Really stunning. Lovely warm water to swim in and great waves for surfing or bodyboarding. You can lie in the shade of the trees along the edge of the beach if you're feeling the heat. Santa Teresa is a friendly town, mostly chilled out surfer types. Some lovely restaurants and bars. We'll definitely be back!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

What a beach! Lovely sand, great surf and good choice of waves to be had. Not very safe for children but we kept them on the shore break or in the rock pools. Even though the nearby road seems very busy the beach was not crowded at all although the waves can be too busy depending on what time or what tide you surf. NEVER leave anything on the beach or in your car.

“GREAT Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Off the beaten path, but worth the trip. If you are a whiner, don't come to this town, no one will like you and no one will care. This place is for the hard core beach and nature lover, anyone else will not like it so stay home.
