Playa Hermosa, Santa Teresa

Beach Nature / Park
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. Using our world travel planner, Santa Teresa attractions like Playa Hermosa can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
