“Perfect for beginner surfers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

This was the perfect beach for our family to learn to surf. Uncrowned and lots of "foam" to learn on. Can't wait to go back.

“Beautiful (Hermosa)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

This Beach was one of my favorite. We road our bikes here from our place at Alma a 15 minute ride. The Tide pools were out of this world never been to a tide pool they were warm clear turquoise white sand soft & magical glistening in the sun!
The waves were sweet the water smooth. We did Yoga in the tide pool area never will forget this in my memory!)

“Great beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

A little of the beaten path but there is free parking 2 meters from the beach. Very favoured by surfers and locals. An added bonus are the howler monkeys between the beach and the road

“Best beach in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

We had a chance to walk the entire Hermosa beach at low tide and it is definitely the best beach in the area. The sand, tide pools, shade, big, long, wide beach is just perfect.
