Surf Spots



Most of the breaks work all the time, but December till March is usually best with off-shore trade winds. Most breaks start working at 2 foot and will hold some bigger swells as well. If a Long distance 16 sec. swell hits, many other points start working and there is quality surf everywhere. The video below was shot by Dong Gi Kim who stayed at Plantation Surf Inn in November 2013, the video highlights the beauty of a lot of the local spots on small to medium swells and includes plantations, Rams and a couple of others you’ll have to come over to find for yourself 😉

Only a minute walk from the house! This submerged reef provides fun waves for intermediate and advanced surfers and breaks at all tides. Mostly a right, with some lefts depending on the swell and how the sand fills the reef in winter.  Really good and un-crowded in the early morning off shore. Starts to break at 2 ft and holds some size.


On the other side of the beach at plantations is coconuts. fast and sometimes hollow lefts peel off before closing out dry reef. Not many people surf here because it is not visible from the main road. Enter the water at plantations and paddle to the peak.
