Playa Hermosa

Great for both surf and play. A beautiful name for a beautiful beach, this beach fills up on weekends; get there early to get a spot under the shade or bring a parasol for those hot sunny days. Fresh fruit and ‘ceviche’ stands are located at the entrance and are a must try! It’s also a hot spot for intermediate to advanced surfers alike, with Punta Achiote at the North end of the beach.

A great spot for sports enthusiasts, the beach is perfect for a Sunday soccer match, boogie boarding, kayak, Stand Up Paddleboard or surfing at high tide.
