Things to Do

The owners chose to live here because they fell in love with surfing and Hermosa beach, and you will do the same.  The beaches of Santa Teresa are consistently best beaches year after year and Hermosa is the hidden gem. Consistent waves, wide sandy beach and never too many people around. The house works with the best surf instructors in Santa Teresa. For the more adventurous surfer, there are several beaches and breaks for you to check out and enjoy along the peninsula too.

The little bay of Hermosa is growing and we now have some excellent dining options within walking distance from the Floating house. Koji’s world class sushi for dinners and newly opened Colour cafe by chef Sebastian Reigner for breakfasts and lunches too. There is also a great Tapas spot and Pranamar restaurant and yoga shalla just a 10 minute walk along the beach.

A ten minute drive takes you into the hustle and bustle of the surf town of santa teresa where you will find restaurants, a french bakery, bars, tourist shops, ATM’s and even a grocery store with organic fruit and veg.

Further afield, there are personal nature tours to Curu, kayaking, zip-lining, mountain bike tours, gourmet dining tours, snorkeling and back at The Floating House, we can also arrange almost anything you need, whether it be a massage therapist or your groceries being delivered.
