Information for Surfers:
Surfing at Mal País: Here you will find world class left and right breaks and beach breaks with ordinary power between 50 and 150 m long. The bottom is flat rocks with sand. The Swell starts working at 1 to 1.5 m, rising low and mid tide in East and West directions. In Mal País some surfing experience is recommended.
At el El Carmen you'll find a long right and a shorter left surfing over sand. At Santa Teresa the waves are usually bigger than at Carmen and better on low tide. Playa Hermosa has left and right beach breaks. Playa de Los Suecos has a lefthander with a fast take-off followed by a long workable wall. With off-shore winds and size it gets hollow. Punta Barrigona has a long lefthander that wraps around the point turning into a great hotdog wave as it moves through the inside. It needs a lot of swell to work properly. The best time for El Carmen, Santa Teresa and Playa Hermosa is when it is small. At Playas Los Suecos and Punta Barrigona it is best when there is swell. The surfing areas around Mal País are really un-crowded.
