Gorgeous beach with a nice beach break. Be aware of rip currents and thieves. Don't leave anything in your car. It is guaranteed it will be gone.

Gorgeous beach with plenty of shade trees. Crystal clear water for swimming & snorkeling. It is a great beach to spend the day.

when staying in any of the beaches nearby get a quad and then you can travel around the best way possible from montezuma (if you're active you only need a day trip here and best way is by quad) and all the remote beaches at the tip of the peninsula.....if you have the time get a quad for 48 hours and this allows you plenty of time to explore and enjoy where you find. Playa Hermosa was one of the nicest places for sunset, swimming and gentle rolling waves for beginner surfers

and they aren't kidding! This beach at the far end of the Mal Pais/ Santa Teresa area is a bit tough to get to and a quad or 4WD is recommended, but so worth the visit. Good waves on a beach break, lots of palms for shade, clean! Our favorite beach there.

Secluded and pristine. It is a great surfing beach. We took our kids surfing there after surfing in Santa Teresa in the mornings.
