Playa Hermosa, Santa Teresa

Relax along the wide sandy shores of Playa Hermosa, which translates to “beautiful beach” in Spanish. Relatively uncrowded, this beach gets you away from the major hustle and bustle of nearby shoreline sites. The beach is popular for beginner surfers and surf schools thanks to the beach break caused by outlying rock croppings. But the site also appeals to expert surfers. Spend time in the shade under a palm or almendro tree, read a book, sunbathe, or go for a jog. Our Santa Teresa visit planner makes visiting Playa Hermosa and other Santa Teresa attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This place was amazing!! Make sure you go during low tide and just wait to be dazzled by the array of fish. We saw puffer fish, octopus, eels, sea urchin, moorish idol, cornet fish, .... and more...  more »
  • My favorite beach! They sell ceviche in the parking lot, along with coconut milk that's good. The waves are great and not to rough. We love to watch the sunsets here as well.  more »
