The Break

Also known as Dinosaurs, Veneros is a classic reef break with a long right that pitches when the wind is offshore (usually every morning). The wave is very much like Malibu Point, only more hollow. Shortboards are ideal here, but longboards are good too. Consistency is year-round with mainly winter swells.

About the Access

Access is next to the Rancho Banderas entrance with a short hike in. If you're not staying on the beach, you access the break via the public access beach called Destiladeras.
