Playa Santa Teresa is well known for its clean waves that break on the beach.

You won’t surf alone at this beach! The lefts and rights break good at lower tides.

In October and November, when the big swells from the South hit the coast, the waves tend to close out at this beach. But it still can hold swell of 8 feet. The waves usually break good when the swell is around 4 to 7 feet high. The swell should com from the North, Northwest or Southwest. Swell from the Southwest shapes nice lefts.

The waves break over sand, but there are some rocks along the beach.
