This beach was great because it’s just an open beach. The sand is white and soft and the waves were great. There is a life guard on duty, but there are no shops or restaurants, which we thought was perfect because it was nice and quiet.

If you want nightlife and lots of shops and tourists, go South to Playa Coco instead. Playa Hermosa is heaven for open beach, palms and forrest, serenity and beauty without any bother, traffic or crowds. Perfect swimming! Feels safe here, too.

Quiet, peaceful, not crowded. Much cleaner and more lovely than nearby Coco Beach. Perfectly clean actually. Never saw any litter. Howler monkeys in the early mornings. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Highly recommend!

Quiet, even at night. Beach is beautiful, clean, and swimming was excellent. I walked by myself along the beach and through town both after dark and at daybreak and never felt unsafe. Friendly locals, more than enough amenities.
