El Salvador is a great surfing destination, and one you’ll need to visit if you like surfing world class point waves in warm water.

The principle surfing zone in El Salvador is centered around the La Libertad area. La Libertad is home to an epic right point break known as “La Roca”. To the west of La Libertad is a series of surf breaks with Sunzal, El Zonte, KM59 – KM 61 and Mizata to name a few.
The other surfing zone in El Salvador has been dubbed “The Wild East” due to its remoteness and lack of crowds. This surf zone is the location of Punta Mango and Las Flores two perfect right points and several other quality waves to choose from.
