Rio Lajas Rivermouth / Los Reyes Surf Spot

“Reyes” is just before the Cabuya bridge at the Rio Lajas. Park on the main road, or drive in at a narrow road where there’s room at the beach to park a handful of cars.

This break is a right-hander, and can run for several hundred meters on a great day. Because it’s on the inside of the peninsula, it needs a good south swell to really break.

This surf spot can be really great, but getting into and out of the water is not. At most tide levels you’ll need to walk across a hundred meters of very sharp, loose rock. Bring some booties if you can. It’s annoying enough to keep many people from surfing here, and it’s often deserted.

To the right (south) it breaks really well right at the rivermouth and you can take both lefts and rights.
