From El Valle walk west on the only road going that direction, towards the beach. You'll here the waves. If you get lost, the only other road out of town takes you to the Beach too!

 Additional Information

First off, to get to El Valle, you must fly to Nuqui a town to the south. No roads in the Choco (the area on the Pacific)! everything is accessed by boat. Don’t worry, the boats are the public transportation, they will take you from town to town.

The surf here is frequent. There are both left and right breaks at El Valle. The waves here carry a lot of energy and are good for short boards. When its big it holds up well, but not for inexperienced surfers.

A few local kids from Cali live in a shack near the beach and shape boards. Nice guys, and will rent, sell, and repair boards for you. Hopefully they are still there. Totally unorganized, but are very helpful and have everything, spare leashes etc. No local hostility at all, in fact they love seeing other people in the water.

Atmosphere

The Choco is truly amazing! The topography, jungle, lack of development, and friendly people make this an amazing place. There are some places to stay (pretty cheap) right on the beach. This beach is beautiful, and almost always has surfable waves. It is a paradise, but with all that said things are changing.

Unfortunately the civil war has entered the area, and the FARC has moved nearby. When I was there it was VERY safe, though now I am hearing mixed reports. PLEASE know the situation before going there. It's sad because the local people there are really victims to the violence, as they are really peaceful.
