 Access

From Valencia: Take the highway to Puerto Cabello (~ 45 Km). Once you get to puerto Cabello, stay in the highway and follow the signs ( Ganango - Patanemo). It takes about 20 minutes (15 Km) from Puerto cabello to Patanemo. The beach has a couple of point breaks, to get to the coral-reef point you have to walk all the way to the West of the bay. The point right in the beack is not too good, it is a sandy bottom but the waves break in one bar, and you usually have to deal with a bunch of swimers.

no title - Beside Patanemo (end of the beach) 10 min. walk or 5 min in a SUV (4X4) is "La Bocaina" conditions bottom coral reef, when the waves are 3 ft. this is the perfect wave/beach of Venezuela. Stephanie (La China)

Epic Surf - When conditions are right, this could be the best wave that you've ever ride!!. I Used to catch the waves close to the mountain, they're the best even though you have that reef barrief in the front (That barrier wasn't there before 96). Be there VERY early in the mourning, glass conditions last until 10:00 am (Good days until 12:00pm) but not later. I hope you'll catch good waves there and keep it clean!!
