“Best kept secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

The beach is beautiful! Not crowded or commercial, just very relaxed and laid back. While we are not surfers, it was fun to watch the surfers in the morning and at night. The sunset was our favorite part of the day, we made sure we were on the beach each night to see it with the surfers in the background.

“Find the best spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Avoid the rocks and find a spot down the beach a bit where the surfers hang out. If you can find a spot near some palm trees, or even near one of the small hotels that has hammocks, that is the best spot!

“Visited this beach the most”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We enjoyed Santa Teresa for the surf. Other pluses of the beach include the row of trees that provides shade as well as ample parking.

“Gorgeous... A surfer's paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

The beach is lovely but not ideal for swimming, as the waves are huge. This is a surfer's paradise. Santa Teresa is great for a long walk on the beach as it has miles of unobstructed walkway. Don't walk the beach at night (even with a group).
