Drive to Tindaya. It's a small town after La Olivia on the main road. If you are in Tindaya follow the off-road track for about 4 Km to the beach which is called "Playa de la Mujer". You'll see some cars which belong to campers. You can see the spot from there. Park your car and surf!

- can be very crouded when no waves at the rest of the islands - be sure to be there early before the surfschools are arrivingtricky to find - best thing is to ask locals

More info: - 4x4 warmly recommended.The name of the spot is not Tindaya, but Playa de la Mujer.Sometimes very strong currents. The wave is not that great, but not bad if flat everywhere else on the west coast.
