We've stayed at a nice place along this beautiful stretch of beach, and will surely return. What I love about it is the clean sand, wild waves, and beautiful scenery looking south towards Malpais. There's little commercial activity besides the one restaurant at the beginning, and the trinket sellers between it and the beach. Horse back rides along the beach... More

Beautiful beaches! Rocky in places, so be careful where you decide to swim. We found that the short walk to Playa Hermosa was better for swimming!

Overall a nice beach. It is a little more crowded than some of the other spots we found. But, the upside is that it is closer to hotels and options for food, drinks, and the town. Great spot to watch surfers or surf. You can't beat the view!

This was our favorite beach in Costa Rica! Really good surf spot for all level, from beginner to pro! This was also a nice beach for people who wanna go in the water and play with the waves. There is a bit of a stream, but really nothing to be scared about. By playing in the water or surfing you... More

Playa Santa Teresa is one of the most gorgeous white-sand beaches in the world. It takes exotic to a whole new level! This tropical paradise stretches about three miles along the Nicoya Peninsula's southern coast. The rugged jungle comes right up to the beach, at high tide the waves almost reach the palm trees. The local beach culture is active,... More
