Rocks - be careful with the bottom rocks they are very sharp... if you step on the wrong rock... well you dont want that..

this town has ten points! - next to olas verdes are even better spots to surf like: shark bay, la posada, and your best wave is el pelado. Playas surf spots are not exploted by the surfing industry. If you want parties, drugs, and to be surfing in a crowded point, head to Mantonita. Playas is the beach town closest to Guayaquil-like an hour and half. Long perfect rights. Go and enjoy!!11!!!!!

- That was a very good description! ;-) You have to go to the beach of Playas (direct way: through marbella) and walk on at the left side. First spot you see is "el Humboldt", behind that old wave-breaker. When the tide is low, you are able to walk to "olaz verdez", a very nice spot! If you are not able to find it, ask for the "surfers-cocktail", a bar of a very pleasure surfer, his name is bori! Ask him, he will help you!
