Great for a little get away. Beautiful sunsets however DO NOT use the beach at night, couple or alone. Myself and another person were mugged on the beach and had everything stolen! Other than that, you will have an amazing time!

My fiance proposed here and it could not have been more private, gorgeous or romantic! Perfect place to park the ATV, get great food/drinks, and lay under a palm tree or jump in the warm water

Nice sand, not too crowded, beatiful people, not very commercial. You can fine few spots with shade to put up your hamac. Incredible regular waives to learn surfing. Not much food or drink to be bought on the beach apart from banana beach resto-bar...

This beach is a great beach to surf and swim on. This beach allows people to run in the morning and do yoga while the sunrise without interference.

Fantastic beach with beautiful sand beach where you could run, it is a good spot to surf. You have always a good set of waves depending the tide. In the morning you will enjoy surfing there and in the evening the sunset is just amazing ! A place to be with different restaurants where you could have a brunch, lunch,... More

The beach is beautiful and seems to go on forever! The surfing was good and the sunsets amazing! It's a one road town with all the shops and eats easy to find. Public transportation is a complex and inconvenient way to travel to and from. Shuttles to other places were expensive. Plan ahead for this.

We love this beach!! It's great for swimming (but make sure you know where all the rocks are situated during low tide so you don't crash into and when it's coveted by the water) It's also great for surfing. Awesome for dogs and our Pitbull Gigi had an amazing time over and under the waves as always. The crowds on... More

Santa Teresa is one long very, very dusty road with hotels, surfshops, quad rentals and such. If you're not here for the surfing you better get the hell out of here! Yes the surf is good, yes there are some great restaurants but breathing this dust 24/7 is really terrible. And don't think the dust won't get in to your... More
