Surf La izquierda de Las Palmeras

An internationally renowned wave to surf in Tenerife
Located in the centre of the large tourist resort of Playa de Las Américas in the south of the island of Tenerife, is the most famous surfing spot on the island. Its popularity is due to the quality of waves and its location in the heart of one of Tenerife's most iconic tourist destinations. The area offers surfing, bodyboarding and Stand Up Paddle spread out along an avenue with various services such as lifeguards, restaurants, showers and parking. No wonder the spot has been used to host world class events such as the WQS and the ASP.

La izquierda de Las Palmeras (Spanish Left) breaks over a volcanic seabed and is famous for its long wave with a variety of sections. With a critical take off and vertical wall, it has very fast hollow sections nearer the beach. The best conditions are between October and March, around high tide with N-NE-NW winds and W-SW-SE swell, which form waves of between one and three metres. While smaller waves are suitable for intermediate surfers, with larger swell it becomes more demanding. At high tide it is recommended to wear boots to get into the water.

- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Try to use ocean- friendly sun creams.
