Take a bus (221) or ask to the local people from "Mariano Beach" or "El Faro". When you arrive to Mariano walk like if you were going to the lighthouse (but by the beach) pass the aquarium leave your stuff in the rocks and jump from the rocks near the small jetty.

Well, la Maquinita is a regional classic. A nice right point break with a fast first tube and other tube sections more in the middle. Can go off but gets really crowded. Can go off in summer too! By the way I saw it breaking perfectly but small and empty.
gets crowded in summer. its a very fun and powerfull pointbreak wave
Well it's a public beach, nice girls on the beach in the summer partys bathrooms and all that stuff, way better in the mornings or afternoons, maybe it's not a chilean or peruvian world class wave but believe me it can get really good.
It rules, you have more spots near some reefs and beachbreaks that can get good.
