“Excellent beach for surfing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

This beach was beautiful and a great spot for beginner and expert surfers. During the easter week it was crowded but once that was over there were only locals and a few tourists around. It was peaceful and very pretty. Lots of friendly dogs around as well.

“Beautiful beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

This beach is best for learning surfers because the waves are a bit lower than on Santa Teresa beach.
You can easily reach the beach by car from Santa Teresa and park right at the entrance, the parking is free but make sure you come early because there are not many parking spots.

“Beautiful Pristine Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

The beach is huge and the ocean is lovely! Very quiet beach if you are looking to get away from the more crowded beaches of Santa Teresa. One of my favourite beaches in the area.

“Idyllic perfect beginner surf beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

Del Soul surf school brought us to this beach which was perfect for our beginner level. The sand was super soft and rock-free. All the surf families at the beach were super cool. Loved it!

“Beautiful and secure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

Playa Hermosa is a gorgeous, long, uncrowded beach that has fantastic beginner surf. There is also a security guard in the lot that keeps an eye on the cars. A little rough for swimming but there is a lagoon and tide pools on the South end that are perfect on the right tide.
