  • Hermosa is a nice enough beach, with lovely views and plenty of sun or shade at your preference. The sand is soft and dark volcanic sand. The water is warm and clear, with little to no surf. There are rocks on the south end which are suitable for snorkeling, though I don't think you'll see much. There's is a lot of beach on the north end, and even fewer people. There is a dude who will collect money from you to park at the main beach access. Just pay him and don't worry about it.
  • Loved it here! The beach itself is so nice and the water is perfect. The view is amazing and it doesn’t get old. It’s perfect for a morning/evening stroll, a full beach day, and families with young kids.
