“Hermosa means beautiful...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

and they aren't kidding! This beach at the far end of the Mal Pais/ Santa Teresa area is a bit tough to get to and a quad or 4WD is recommended, but so worth the visit. Good waves on a beach break, lots of palms for shade, clean! Our favorite beach there.

Secluded and pristine. It is a great surfing beach. We took our kids surfing there after surfing in Santa Teresa in the mornings.

“Great Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Good shade, very few rocks surfing great when tide is starting to go down. It costs about $2 round trip per person via taxi from Playa Carmen on a bumpy, dusty dirt road

“Breathtaking Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Amazing beach that goes on for miles. Good surf and fairly quiet. Need a car or atv to get there but definitely worth a visit.

“Great Beach, Safe Surf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

My family with 3 kids loved this beach as it wasn't as rough as Santa Teresa and was really safe for surfing and swimming. We came here at sunset two times, so beautiful.
