Avellanas Beach

A 2km beach, it has rocks on both sides with varying vegetation. Along the coastline there is some evidence of deforestation with some patches of vegetation that is characteristic of the area. You need to be careful when you bathe at this beach especially in the front area because of a submerged rock. Visit this beach if you like the sun sand sea or surfing. It is a long beach with 8 good quality breaks. There are two wave points: one with a left break close to the beach and a right break (Little Hawaii) where you can enjoy long and solid waves although not perfect.
