About Punta Palmar (San Carlos)

Bigger swells light up Punta Palmar’s fast powerful righthanders at high tide. The misleadingly named peaks of Hawaiisito (Little Hawaii) favour lefts, are readily accessible, but will not handle swell above head-high. There’s also a popular beachbreak between both points, which serves as a contest site, despite most waves tendency to closeout.
