La Libertad area or the West Coast is a mountainous coastline that has amazing point breaks conglomerated in about a 30-mile stretch. The port of La Libertad is about 30 minutes south of the capital city of San Salvador. From La Libertad to Mizata (the last significant surf break on the west coast), there are nine of the best surfing points in Central America, including many beach breaks that can be epic in the right conditions.
Punta Roca offers what is arguably the best point break in all of Central America. It is long and hollow (300 yards on a set wave).
Conchalio is one of El Salvador’s best beach breaks. It is close to Punta Roca and a definite option for small days. The waves are very hollow and fast.
La Paz is located in Punta Roca. It has a long slow crumbling wave for longboarders and beginners and at times can line up for a really nice wave. This is a great wave to check if you want some less crowded conditions, or if you are looking for a wave that is more slow and crumbly. In addition, if you are on your way from surfing at Punta Roca, you can try paddling instead of going via the rocks so that you can catch a nice wave at La Paz on your way out.
La Bocana is one of El Salvador’s few left breaking waves. But don’t let its left fool you, it breaks right too. The left breaking waves are typically more crowded. La Bocana has long been considered as El Salvador's only “locals” wave. The waves are mostly for advanced surfers. Due to the shallow rocks and its powerful fast breaking nature, it is not suitable for beginners. If you are on the low-intermediate level of surfing, it is probably not a great option for you because you will have trouble competing with the higher level of surfers.
La Bocanita is a powerful intense beach-break for advanced surfers. There is a friendly lineup, but be ready for heavy waves and strange currents. It usually works in the afternoons and on high-tide. You can surf this wave by yourself, or with tons of ripping local kids, depending on the day. With some of the new developments in Playa El Tunco like the Monkey Lala sunset bar, sometimes you can surf while enjoying some trendy techno music in the background.
Sunzal is a very long right point break (300 yards), with a fast take off, perfect carving walls, and rare barrels that are perfect for all surfers. From November through February, you can expect to find great learning waves.
El Sunzalito is a fast beach break for intermediate to advanced surfers. It needs a bigger swell to break, and it is usually better in the afternoon (similar to La Bocanita).
El Zonte is a right hand point with some fast sections. It is suitable for all surfers. The town is very nice and quiet, with good restaurants and many talented artisans.
El Cocal consists of three right hand points. It is not as consistent as other surf spots in El Salvador but it is epic when it is on. The crowds are very small.
K59 is a powerful right hand point over sand and rock bottom. There are very small crowds on weekends.
K61 is a fickle right point that becomes insane when its on. It is only for advanced surfers. It has an empty lineup, the waves tend to be slower and crumbly, and you will have tons of space to yourself.
Mizata is a right and left breaking point or rivermouth over cobblestone. It also has a nice beach break. Mizata is the most isolated place to surf in El Salvador because it is far from San Salvador. It is a great spot to surf on weekends.
The El Salvador East Coast surf region sees less traffic than the La Libertad (West Coast) area and offers powerful right hand point breaks that are ideal for solid intermediate to expert surfers. There are basically no shops or restaurants here except in the hotels. From March to November, the average wave heights are 5 to 10 feet. It can also reach up to 15 feet. The average crowd at the East Coast waves is around 25-30 surfers.
Las Flores is a very consistent right point break that works best at low to mid tide. There is a sand and rock bottom that breaks mechanically with long rides and a hollow outside section. The take off is fast and you need to be ready to hustle.
Punto Mango is a powerful hollow right point breaking over cobblestone. There is an extremely hollow take-off with a serious barrel at size. Punto Mango is accessible only by boat. This surf trip includes the boat transport so you can surf in both Las Flores and Punta Mango every day.
La Vaca is a right point break with an inside reef exposed at low tide. It offers good unsurfed waves. There are many other secrets and remote spots of the beach break.
The crowd in this spot is very small crowd and you can start to paddle with the long paddle.
Breakfast will be served for you every day.
