Playa Santa Teresa, Santa Teresa

Take a trip to Playa Santa Teresa, an attractive and popular part of the coast. The sandy expanse offers a wide space for relaxation and recreation, while the trees that back the beach provide plenty of shade for cooling off after playing a beach game or taking a swim. The beach attracts surfers with its variety of beach breaks, point breaks, and high swells, ideal for more experienced surfers. Head north along the beach to find more secluded areas, with resorts thinning out and the landscape becoming rockier and dotted with more protected bays. Find out how to plan Santa Teresa trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

  • Lovely white beach, with lots of surfers, yet a great beach for anyone to go into the water. Wonderful to walk or run or just sit and people watch! Lots of families too! You just can’t get enough of.....  more »
  • Loved this beach and vibe! Great waves and warm water. It wasn't overly busy at any time, such a gorgeous place to watch the sunset and just enjoy the day! I took a surfing lesson here and loved it!  more »
