The Alacrán Peninsula used to be an island before being connected to the land when the port of Arica was built in the ‘60s. El Brazo’s sand-covered reef breaks at the northern tip of the island off the elbow jetty and requires a large wrapping swell and S-SW winds. When on, it’s a large tubular A-frame with more chance of making the rights, which stay open longer.

Pretty low consistency and crowds. Few will see or score this wave.
