About 3 miles north of Santa Teresa take the dirt road that veers left to the beach. You'll see a rocky point straight ahead that turns into a good point break when it's big. Park your 4x4 on the beach and hit the surf. There's a good area to camp about 25 yards to your left near the trees.

awesome place - we found this place when mal pais was too crowded.very fun and empty.park your car on the beach and stay all day.odds are you wont see more than 3 people.i just wish this website didnt give specific directions.dont be lazy and explore costa rica,there are many breaks that are unpublisheed.all it takes is a little adventure.

This beach name is playa hermosa (not the one neer jaco) - This beach is kind of a secret spot and i don't know how you know this beach, Anyway it's the most butifule beach in all costa rica and no one's in the water. the waves can get big.
