La Tiza

Edit Spot

I personally had a lot of fun surfing here. It is not to big, not to small but very very fun.

The beach is full of people during the weekend. Luckily very, very few surf the wave.

Additional Info:
When you get to the beach, you'll all the way to the left end of the beach, a floating square raft infront of some rocks.. Right infront of it is the best spot. Outstanding tubes and great for speed and manouvres. There are waves all over the beach but the best spot is in front of the rocks. This wave is only for bodyboarders. If you go in with a surfboard a assure you that it will break. The depth is low. Fins would touch the sand if in a wave.


Acces by land is almost impossible. The beach is a military beach, only accessible by land to people in the Peruvian army. So to get in you need to go by boat. You will have to find la honda beach first, then right beside it is La Tiza.
