Favored by surfers from all over the world, this stunning spot is an intermediate surf beach. You can set up a surf lesson right on the beach or at one of the surf shops on the street closest to the beach. At sunset, you’ll find a bohemian feel and laid back atmosphere. Everyone has a seat to watch the surfers and the sunset. You can typically join in a game of pick-up volleyball.
On the beach, you’ll find a few palapa restaurants and small casitas where surfers stay to be close to the waves. In La Punta, referring to the village, you’ll find a hippie vibe with juice bars, slow food restaurants, and local designer clothing stores. La Punta has a typical Mexican pueblo feel. You can walk around barefoot on the unpaved streets.
La Punta is a great place to spend a day. Have a freshly squeezed juice in the morning, take a long walk, have a healthy lunch, some shopping, take in a surf lesson or relax beachside and just enjoy the ocean breezes, warm sand and sunshine.
