“Best beach”

Our favorite beach in Santa Teresa. Tide pools in the mid-morning low tide are perfect for swimming and full of little critters - crabs, clown fish, etc. Good surfing spot. Not crowded at all. Families mostly.

Beautiful beach with great surf! As the tides come in and out, you never have to worry because this particular stretch of beach is located in such a place that there is no reef or rocks at any tide! Just make sure a guide with some knowledge of the area shows you the correct places to surf.

This beach also has fantastic views of the coastline surrounding Playa Hermosa. Some of my best pictures from the whole trip were taken right here.

GO! It's paradise
