“Beautiful crescent beach with surf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014 NEW

I could have spent all day and all night on this beach, and I very nearly did. Often great surf there, always great views, and an unbeatable sunset. After dark, look out for baby sea turtles and bioluminescence in the water!

“It's a nice beach, just watch your stuff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014 NEW

We went for surf lessons out on Playa Santa Teresa. The waves were great. A lot of reviews I have seen complain about petty theft and while it's true, I imagine if you left your stuff sitting out on the beach anywhere SoCal the same thing would happen. It is a little rough around the edges and doesn't have the infrastructure to it, like paved roads, but that's part of the charm. We had a great time and would come back.

“Great beach, lots of sand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014 NEW

This beach is great, even if you don't surf. LOTS of sand and not a lot of rocks. The surf is a bit rough to just swim, but good for boogie boards and playing in the waves.

“Beach time!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 NEW

If you want to go to a beautiful beach surrounded by lots of nature and in a town filled with charming people, nightlife and good vibes, this is the perfect place! However remember that the ocean is rough and with big waves, but great for surfing.
