 Access

By boat only. There are 4 surf camps in close proximity and all have access to boats so crowds can vary greatly depending on season and occupancy of camps (few people to upwards of 30). You can also hire local fishing boats to take you there for a fair price in Playa Miramar or in the port at Puerto Sandino.

 Additional Information

Sand bar was completely washed out sometime in 2013ish and has been slow to come back. Very different wave from what it used to be with a couple different sections of the sand bar that have been working, but far inside of where the wave used to break. Can be a tricky spot to surf with pretty ledgey fast take offs on the sets with at times howling offshore winds. However, it does offer up long draining lefts with tube sections and nice walled sections for turns.

Atmosphere

Not a secret. 4 surf camps in the area. Boats come and drop 4 - 10 surfers at a time. Generally good vibes in the water but beware that one of the surf camps is very popular with Brazilian surfers and they have been known to dump 20+ ppl in the lineup.

nice breaks empty breaks long puerto sandino - Check Miramar surfcamp, it has access to the 1/2 mile stretch of beach, so breaks are less hairy. All the breaks appeared to work best before sunrise and/or high tide. The owner, Pablo, is wonderful, knows the breaks well and has a variety of accommodations that are nice and clean. I was there in August/Sept 2010, the only other surfers were from Surf Tours Nicaragua. This place at "La Flor" is dirty and way over priced. In addition, the owner is too new to the place to be familiar with how the breaks work.
