El Salvador Surfing Vacations

Surfing in El Salvador is both a cultural experience and a greatly enjoyable pleasure. El Salvador boasts a number of long right hand point breaks making it a surfers ideal destination. El Salvador has more than just one wave, and the whole country is literally swarming with awesome right point breaks and beach breaks that are glorious and safe to surf. Although the western La Libertad area is where surfers first visited, today however surf travelers are realizing that destinations such as Mizata here featured by Pure Vacations is attracting surfers not only because of the wonderful classy waves, but the quietness and tranquility that comes with it. Despite being the smallest of the Central American countries, El Salvador claims the highest number of quality point breaks in Central America. Many claim that El Salvador has the highest density of point breaks in the whole of America and after surfing there it's very hard to disagree.

The surfing season is almost year round and averages between 3 to 6 feet and is often extremely clean and are ideal for all standards and if the surf is a 3+ foot we guarantee you the surf will be truly great. This is a destination for all to enjoy but it is also the best type of surfing experience that you could hope for and never to be forgotten for the right reasons. The great thing about surfing in El Salvador is that it is a new surf destination, hardly any surfers and with the exception of 3 or 4 friendly locals you will probably have the surfing just to yourself.

Our accommodation is in Mizata which is a small village / town the world has mostly overlooked and that is great for travelers wanting a quality taste of El Salvador’s legendary surf and lifestyle, in a relaxed, surf-intense setting. It’s not unusual to find yourself out at the point, in wonderful surf just by yourself where you can glide down the line with only nature to enjoy. The main spot at Mizata is “The Point”, a right and a left breaking off a cobblestone river mouth near our accommodation and in the fine tradition of cobblestone river mouth surf. The right is longer at 50 to 100 yards, while the left is shorter and zips toward the beach break at The Beach Break, which is divided into three areas: Boulder is on the left side of the beach, in front of the Lodge – a left beach break that gets hollow with the right swell angle and tide. Antenna is in the middle of the beach. Formed by a shallow sandbar, Antenna is an A frame that is consistently the most fun and hollow wave in Mizata. Don Miguel’s is an easier, beginner wave, a right beach break in front of the last shack on the beach.
