The premier wave at Playa Negra has a rock bottom with perfect right-handed barrels and well defined channel for paddling out. The break has good exposure to both Northern and Southern Hemisphere swells and is reasonably consistent year round. December through April is the dry season, and surfers can expect steady off-shore breezes, cloudless skies and flawless conditions.
Sea turtles and parrot fish cruise the line-up accompanied by schools of brightly colored reef fish. A white sand beach provides swimming and boogie-boarding opportunities. Within walking distance are numerous other breaks, including some off-shore reefs for the more adventurous.
