The Break

Las Peñitas is a mellow, normal, right and left point break. It is a great wave for beginner surfers and intermediate surfers who prefer consistent and fun waves at a relatively unknown break. It's located right in front of Playa Roca Beach Hotel. Longboards are ideal here. Consistency is high year-round.
