Ideal conditions for surfing all year round in Lanzarote
On the northwest coast of the island of Lanzarote, in the fishing village of La Santa, is a spot which can be surfed all year round. Not a wave for beginners, the left of La Santa is one of the most sought after waves both by local surfers and visitors because of its consistency and quality. Situated in an area of steep volcanic coast and strong waves, it is easily accessible from the village itself. Vehicles can be left in a car park across from the spot.

The left of La Santa is of undeniable quality, a short explosive wave which breaks on both sides. Surfers prefer the left hand wave, which is somewhat longer than the right hand, with perfect clean barrels which break over a volcanic reef. Entry into the water is difficult as you have to walk down the rocks and enter in front of the peak, take great care and wear surf booties as the sea is strong and its bottom is steep. Although conditions are consistent, surfing is optimum between the months of September and May with S-SW-SE-E winds and N-NE-NW-W swells and at medium tide.
