The Break

Playa Cocles offers a series of powerful short beach breaks going left and right. In addition, there is a very inconsistent yet powerful short left that breaks over reef on the north end of Cocles Island, across from the beach. Longboards and funboards are ideal here. Consistency is year-round.
