If you want to learn to surf or you already love it, this area is heaven! There are many local surf breaks to fit the needs of any skill level. Our house is located near the break at Playa Hermosa which is an great beach for beginners or anyone that enjoys a clean inside break. The flat sand bottom at Playa Hermosa’s inside break goes gradually getting deeper for a very long distance, providing excellent conditions for beginners to catch long mellow and safe waves all the way to the shore. These waves usually break longer than other surf breaks in the area and the tide window to surf here is wider. To check out more information on other local breaks, see our Santa Teresa surf breaks page.
