The Break

Glover's Reef is a punchy normal to long right point break. Surf breaks in the country are rare, yet waves here are very active, accessible, and offer plenty of fun. Due to the private access of the island, lineups are only shared with island guests. Longboards, funboards, and SUPs work well here. Kitesurfing, windsurfing, and kayak surfing are also popular options. Consistency is year-round, with winter offering the best conditions. Booties are highly recommended due to the reef and rocky seabed.
