Powerful waves with rock sand bottom.
Easy access and works almost everyday. Also great for experienced longboarders. The spot has a little sandy beach with a small foodshop. The sun will disappear around 4.30 p.m due to the mountains. View in the water of the island is great!!

Can not go in the water ! - The best waves practitioners I have seen in my week of vacation.
Red flag: no swimming (normal).
Problem: prohibition of security to go to the water even to the boogie!
With the same condition, I could go in France.
In general, permissions are too strict on this island.

Beach closed to public - The Playa del Socorro is closed to public due to risk of landslide. At the moment there is a possibility to climb around the fence and surf there.
