The most popular location for surfing in the area is Flamingo Point which attracts a fair amount of surfers. While Flamingo Point is a popular surfing destination, the break manages to remain devoid of large crowds so students may enjoy learning how to surf at their own pace.
Playa Flamingo is ideal for beginner surfers as the hollow waves are somewhat short. The point break is inconsistent and the take off zone at Playa Flamingo is small. Swells range from 3 feet to 8 feet and the best times for surfing are at low and mid tides.
