About Playa de Famara

6 kms of curving beach that receives swell from W-N and handles wind from SW-E. Centre of the bay receives the most of the swell, but the sandbanks will close out at around 8-10ft faces. North end can get fast and hollow at lower tide while south end is smaller and easier.

Super consistent and relatively free of localism hassles. Perfect for learner/improvers and plenty of space for the surf school operators. Be aware of strong sideshore drift and currents. Isolated, so care with belongings is required.
