Surf Spots MAP

Bahía de Banderas is a paradise for surfing. Every surf spot is unique and you need to know the correct tide and swell direction of each of one so you can get the best out of every spot.

We as locals, surfed for over 15 years those places and we know where and when to go, some of the places are only accessed by boat or dirty road, but some others are easy to get there.
