Review of Playa Hermosa

My husband took a surf lesson here, and I came along to watch and see a different beach. It was beautiful. Lots of trees in the parking area with lots of monkeys. The water was so blue and the beach was clean and not crowded at all. We came back two more times during our week in Santa Teresa. I boogie boarded one day and it was fun for that as well as for my husband to practice his surfing.

My boyfriend had a surf lesson here one day so I tagged along. This beach was breathtaking. Flat, long, gentle waves, beautiful views. It was perfect!

Its a bit out of town but worth getting to. Sandy beach, long flat beach, surfing for all levels and clean.

This is an absolutely awesome place to learn how to surf. I took lessons from Ismael at Pranamar and loved it. Wear sunscreen, and keep your eyes forward and your knees bent.

This long and wide beach was always filled with families and new surfers. The waves were gentler than some of the other beaches and you needed to walk out pretty far--50 to 75 yards--to have the water reach your waist. Great for beginning surfers.
