Santa Teresa, great tubes in sight

During the low season, one can practically surf alone. This is a beach well-frequented by Brazilians, especially during carnival season.

Pesqueros de Playa Grande

This is one of the most consistent beaches in the area and receives swells from the E and S, bringing in high-quality waves. Swells coming from the east break left off the rocks, opening up towards the middle of the beach resulting in long tube waves that stretch for over 100 meters. Sea conditions permitting, we recommend surfers stay away from the rocks since going around the sandbank can be quite difficult with waves reaching up to a meter and a half in height. This can produce some dangerous currents for casual beach goers considering this is the only beach in the area that does not have active lifeguards on duty. The southern swells break fiercely to the mid-right, and if the bank is good and with a little luck there can be some really good waves coming your way.

El Barco

With large swells southbound and winds from SW, El Barco can have very good waves. This is a good option when the tide is high and other beaches are inaccessible. Waves coming from the east also create good conditions at this beach.

La Moza Beach

Some of the best waves in the country can be found here when the tide is high. This beach faces the S and SE. We can find long, right-banking waves that can break 300 meters from the rocks. The water pours in where when they connect with the La Mocita rocks and waves can stretch for more than 500 meters. Waves reach heights of 2.5 meters to absolute perfection. Getting in position can be an exercise that requires patience as swells constantly pump making it difficult for  surfers to make it to the rocky points. The alternative is to wait between sets and not hesitate to make your move as a slip up at this point can be dangerous. Or lastly, you can enter the water near Achiras, which is a longer paddle, but a safer one.
