Caballeros and Señoritas are so named, because in the past, men and women were segregated into their own beaches. Caballeros is probably the best and most reliable righthander in the Punta Hermosa region, drawing in S to W swells onto a jutting headland reef. It starts off with a sucky spurt, then walls and shoulders as it bends onto the shallower parts of the reef, before hitting some hollow sections in the inside. Good power and just the right speed make it a favourite with intermediate and experienced regular-footers. Wont hold quite as much size or power as Señoritas and works best at mid incoming as a few rocks can break up the wave at low tide unless it is big.

Like Señoritas, weekend crowds are thick, but it's possible to pick up waves all along the line-up. Long paddle using the mid-beach channel and the currents can be fast out at the tip of the point. Popular summer beach and good restaurants line the cliff tops of this up-market residential area.
