“Serene beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Playa Hermosa is gorgeous! Although it's a bit of a drive from Santa Teresa, it's well worth it. We spent an afternoon relaxing and swimming on the beach with locals.

Awesome area with white water that's great to learn on. Fun boogie boarding and surf lessons with rides all the way to shore!

“Great surfing for beginners.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Olingo Tours and Mauricio made it safe and fun! We all were able to surf (sort of) by the end of our first lesson.

“Best beach in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Absolutely beautiful, wide, sandy beach meets up with leafy trees. Guarded parking area is a bonus. Good for swimming and surfing, depending on your level. We were there as beginners but it depends on the time of day/year as to how high the surf gets.

“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Surf's up.....this beach seems to stretch endlessly and the waves seems the break nicely for beginner-intermediate surfers.
