The Break

La Lancha is a classic right reef break with a consistent peak followed by a long wall, along one of the most beautiful beaches in the area. Its somewhat isolated location and distance from the main road help control the crowds. La Lancha beach is only accessible via a narrow walking path through a jungle reserve; you can also rent a boat to get there from Punta Mita. Longboards, shortboards, and SUPs are all good here. Consistency is year-round.
