“We surfed here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

So beautiful and full of surfers and holiday makers. My son stood on a surf board on his first go! Mom was not so fortunate! I will keep trying though ;)

“Great beach and village!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We stayed in this little village and loved it. Great long beach with some waves, dark sand and quiet. There are some restaurants on the beach where you can eat or drink and you can hear some howler monkeys who are just around in trees....

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

My husband took a surf lesson here, and I came along to watch and see a different beach. It was beautiful. Lots of trees in the parking area with lots of monkeys. The water was so blue and the beach was clean and not crowded at all. We came back two more times during our week in Santa Teresa. I boogie boarded one day and it was fun for that as well as for my husband to practice his surfing.

My boyfriend had a surf lesson here one day so I tagged along. This beach was breathtaking. Flat, long, gentle waves, beautiful views. It was perfect!
