Surfing has enjoyed more and more popularity over the past few years in Uruguay. Many options are available for tourists to enjoy great waves, for all levels of surfing, in the departments of Canelones, Maldonado, and Rocha, and even, after a particularly strong storm, in Montevideo.
The Atlantic coast has the best spots to enjoy swells all year round. During the winter, swells come primarily from the South, while in the spring, summer, and autumn, they come from the East. During the summer months, water maintains a warm temperature which on rare occasions requires only a short suit. However, in the winter, temperatures can drop to 6 or 8 degrees Celsius, making a 4/3 mm suit a necessity, as well as boots and gloves.
