Monterrico Beach is a great place. Its hot, there is great black volcanic sand and the waves are fun and enjoyable.
Over the years the beach has changed and I have heard that it is getting more dangerous. Why? Because the beach sand is getting more slanded and steep so the waves pound on the beach, so when you are swimming and playing in the waves you get pounded into the sand! The waves are great but very strong and there are tidal currents that can take you away and there is nothing that you can do about it- which is scarey!
