Reviewed September 18, 2013

Awesome area with white water that's great to learn on. Fun boogie boarding and surf lessons with rides all the way to shore!

“Great surfing for beginners.”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Olingo Tours and Mauricio made it safe and fun! We all were able to surf (sort of) by the end of our first lesson.

“Best beach in the area”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Absolutely beautiful, wide, sandy beach meets up with leafy trees. Guarded parking area is a bonus. Good for swimming and surfing, depending on your level. We were there as beginners but it depends on the time of day/year as to how high the surf gets.

Reviewed August 31, 2013

Surf's up.....this beach seems to stretch endlessly and the waves seems the break nicely for beginner-intermediate surfers.

“beautiful beach”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

this is a great beach for the beginner/intermediate surfer. beach break and easy to paddle out during low tide. the beach itself is a bit rock in sections, but stunning since it's so close to the jungle edge. take a walk north and you'll find a nice secluded area to hang out. Hermosa is a bit tough to get to without a 4x4 or ATV though.
