The surf is great for both novice and experienced riders alike, a good range of sites ensures this.  This site is located out of the bay and would have to be the most consistent break around. You can always be guaranteed a right hander when all else is failing.  See Photo Gallery…

Urbiztondo Beach is all about surfing and surfing here is a way of life. Here is where you’ll ride your first wave, here is where you’ll improve your wave riding and here is where you want to spend the rest of your surfing days with. It’s home. Locals, regulars, first-timers – you meet them at the lineup today and they’ll probably be back the next day. Or the next week. Or the next month. It doesn’t really matter, they’ll be back for sure. Back to the capital. – Source:

Pebble Beach has a never ending supply of colored stones. Locals say that they’ve been quarrying for years and the stones just keep coming their way. Even local children join in on the fun, placing tiny rocks in old water bottles to sell. On this beach you will also find the remnants of an old lighthouse, built during the Spanish period and used in WWII. Only the ruins remain, but it sure makes a great backdrop for photos. –  See Photo Gallery…
