The majority of these beaches are known like Mal País. There are crests on the breaks and some reefs. The majority of surf is on the main beach on the way to Cobano. El Carmen has to be one of the most consistent breaks that you can find. The angle of the beach and the depth of the seabed help pick up any waves from the Pacific as there is nothing that blocks the waves. It is also good at any tide, when the wind conditions as well as the surface are calm. The best direction of the waves has to be west. The west waves produce break peaks with a fun center. The closes to the outside are not very common. The south waves are more aligned and are more frequent. They are powerful, but they tend to close further out. The beaches are approximately 2 Km long, with rocks on each extreme. There are approximately 12 crests along this line and it is a little bit crowded, you can only go up or down the beach a little to be able to get your own crest.
