Pulpos is a wide-open, exposed beachbreak that picks up all the available from both south and north, providing it is not too big to transform the banks into one big straight-hander. Can be steep and fast with barrels that favour those happy to hit lips as it closes-out, namely bodyboarders. There are better waves in the area heading north towards Arica and the other bonus is the peaks seem to line-up better on the rights.

Signposted off the Pan Am Hwy, but parking is strictly controlled for residents only so access is a problem, along with the strong rips that appear along this stretch.
