About Playa de La Canteria

A small sandy bay nestled beneath cliffs at the northern tip of the island. From mid to high tide a peak breaks in the centre of the bay over a sand bottom. At high tide this becomes a more defined left. Also at high tide on the eastern side of the bay a righthander can peel down the rocks giving a fast and sometimes hollow ride. Swells over 6ft tend to close-out the bay.

Strong rips and side drift. Sometimes crowded.
