Playa Cavancha (Iquique) Spot Guide

Stormrider Guide

Playa Cavancha is the main city beach, which is usually just a big closeout, but in winter and on windswells with a bit of W or N in them there will be a few corners for beginners and cruisers. Around Punta Cavancha are some more reefbreaks and then the small swell beachbreaks of Playa Brava and Huayquique that are usually too big to surf and blown out.

These exposed beaches are only worth checking on small swells with light winds and will often have nasty rips running up and down them.
