Create an itinerary including Playa Hermosa
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.

  • Impossibile to go in the water. Very shallow
  • Road was closed traveling north from Mal Pais. This made the congestion here very hard for driving. Otherwise the campground was wonderful.
