Hermosa, which means "beautiful" in Spanish, is an aptly named gray-sand beach that perches between two mountains. Hermosa is seldom as crowded as its neighbors. It is a fabulous getaway for those seeking quality relaxation. Most visitors bring a blanket and sunscreen to soak up Costa Rica’s glorious sun, and due to its calm surf, Hermosa is a favorite for swimmers.

A lovely, wide and languid sheltered bay, framed by headlands and sprinkled with coconut palms and olive trees, Playa Hermosa serves up serious surf that commands the utmost respect. It is Regarded as one of the most consistent and powerful breaks in the whole country.

Playa Hermosa is directly on the Costanera Highway that runs south to Quepos and Manuel Antonio. From Jaco, you can take a taxi for about US$7 or take a bus that does the route to Quepos or Parrita.
