Shaka Beach Retreat is a beautiful boutique surf and yoga retreat at Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica.

Located on the northern coast of Costa Rica, Shaka Beach Retreat is surrounded by lush Costa Rican jungle a few minutes walk to Playa Hermosa, a wide golden beach framed by warm rolling waves and towering palm trees.

If you’re a beginner surfer, Playa Hermosa offers perfect conditions for learning, while intermediate and expert surfers will find fun waves at Playa Hermosa’s beach break and right point break.

This charming beachside hideaway is chock-full of friendly people and good vibes. The amazing staff has a talent for making guests feel at home, and while all rooms and villas are private, there is a community atmosphere, as guests gather for meals together in the communal palm-roofed rancho.

Intimate small-group surf lessons, top-notch yoga classes, and healthy delicious food are just a few things to look forward to at Shaka Beach Retreat. Whether you want to explore the abundant activities or indulge in the art of relaxation, Shaka excels in making surf trips nothing short of awesome.
