Punta Hermosa is a great area for a surfer to find himself in, as there are ample consistent spots within walking distance of each other. In the southern hemisphere winter, the waves around Punta Hermosa are typically big. While a lot of the headlands favor the rights waves, there are also hollow lefts, plus a few offshore winds that handle serious size and power.
The most important waves are "La Isla" a reef peak, good right, power and long. "El Paso" reef peak, power and hollow tube right with a very good left section too. These waves break in front of the Surf Hostel.
Twenty minutes by walk break "Señoritas" with left power and sometimes hollow tube while "Caballeros" produce longer, fatter rights. At only 1 km. from the Surf Hostel, "Punta Rocas" is by far the most consistent wave that breaks all year round. These waves have been qualified as Internationals Championships Spots in the last years.
The dominant swell is S-SW, the swell size average from November to May is 3-4ft and from June to October is 5-6ft, with a consistency of 70% on summer and 80% on winter. The dominant wind is SE-S, with an average force F3. The water temperature on summer (Dec-Apr) goes from 62-68f and on winter (Jun-Oct) goes from 57-61f. Wetsuit is necessary.
