About Maracaipe

The most consistent beach in this zone is Maracaipe, which hosted the 2000 World Surfing Games. Although the middle of the beach is usually the best, there are dozens of other sand banks to choose from. The wave tends to roll through from outside banks reforming several times on its journey to the close-out shore break. High tide tends to be better but on the whole the wave quality is poor.
