General Description: Playa viejo Rey La Pared. The long breaking white water waves on smaller days over the flat sloping sand banks make this beach ideal for beginners - it is not even necessary to paddle or swim out, making it an ideal location to start surfing at. When the swell is bigger it is not the beach for beginners. Big east north east swells provide the best waves. Offshore in the mornings mostly.

I spent one week at La Pared in August 2008. During this week, there was always a time of the day where you could go surfing. I agree to the details of the surf spot details, just be aware, if you are a beginner, it is important to join a local surf school, as there are quite strong winds and the swell can get quite big!
