Cosiguina is completely empty and offers tons of surf set ups. The Finca is a solid fun left breaking in front of a farm on the cliff. Punta Salvia is a long workable left on the inside of Coffee Grinds, an a frame reef, Scott's peak is an a-frame and holds the most size, it is up towards Punta Nata. Waves are mostly lefts, but a couple of rights, breaking on sand/rock bottom. There may be bullsharks. You need to get a boat from Potosi, ask for Julio and Julio Jr. This is a mission, but well worth it if theres a solid S-W swell.Virgin Surfspots.
Beautiful, empty and wild. Go explore.
Tons of potential
