Top Spanish words for beautiful
Note that the Spanish language has masculine and feminine forms of many words; the feminine form is listed first here.
”Bella / Bello”
If you want to call your teacher, friend, or mom beautiful, bella is a good choice. Bella is the word you can use for almost anyone. It is slightly formal, and it can describe anything pleasing to the eye: the scenery, a painting, or your lover’s eyes.
”Bonita / Bonito”
This is similar to bella in that it can be used to describe anything–clothing, a car, a person–but it is not quite as strong. It means pretty or nice.
”Linda / Lindo”
Similar in meaning to bonita, linda means lovely or nice, and it can also be used as an adverb. This word is more common in Latin American than in Spain.
”Guapa / Guapo”
Even though the feminine form of this word is listed first, the masculine form is almost always used. Depending on the region, guapo can mean handsome, attractive, cool, awesome, brave, or bold. It can even mean braggart or bully, so be careful where you use it!
”Buena / Bueno”
Something that is buena is good looking or good. You hear buena or bueno all the time in Spanish, but it can mean different things depending how it is used. If you say ella es buena, you are saying that she is good. Changing the verb es (which refers to something more permanent, like a physical or personality trait) to esta (which refers to something more temporary, like an emotion or condition) changes the meaning. Ella esta buena means she is good looking.
”Hermosa / Hermoso”
This is another common word in Spanish, and can be used to describe people, places, and things. It can mean beautiful, gorgeous, nice, or noble. With such a wide variety of meanings, context is everything in this case.
”Attractiva / Attractivo”
As you’ve probably already guessed, attractiva means attractive. You can use it in the same way attractive is used in English.
This is a type of candy, but it can be used to refer to your loved one; if you say your lover is a bombon, you’re calling him sweet.
”Estar Como Un Queso”
This phrase, oddly, means “like a cheese” but is slang for tasty, hot, or attractive. If someone says you’re like a cheese in Spanish, you should mostly likely be flattered rather than offended.
