Playa Valor is a grey sand beach located nearby Playa Hermosa and Jaco. It features a rocky point break with many lefts that can get quite good at a low tide with swells coming from Northwest and Southwest direction. The waves break over a rocky sand bottom to the left. To access the beach, you will have to paddle across the river. The best wind direction is from the northeast. Groundswells are more common that windswells. The break is ideal for all levels of surfers. Watch out for rip currents, sharks and rocks. Valor gets super crowded on weekends.Playa Valor Surfing
