About El Cabezo

Isla San Lorenzo is Peru’s largest island, lying 4km (2.5mi) offshore from the city shores. A left will break at El Cabezo below the lighthouse on the largest NW/SW swells, but is little documented since the island is deserted with no regularly scheduled trips. Any S wind will be offshore enough.

Only locals with boats and intimate knowledge of the conditions needed for making it worth the long trip out to this desiccated, mountainous isle will ever surf here, albeit alone.
