Montañita itself is Ecuador’s main surf break and is identified by a phallic shaped rock. It catches any N and S swells, holding up to 10ft (3m) sets and it’s a juicy right even when it’s only 2ft (0.5m). This world class wave is usually crowded and has become something of a surf centre where it’s possible to get cheap, decent accommodation.
