Best tide positionAll tides
Best tide movementRising and falling tides
in front is the beach break with numerous peaks that work at all tides, far right there is a point break which fires a sucky wave when all else is too big best at a lower tide though!
carry on up the beach to the left and you will find at mid to high tides, multiple reef breaks which give a real punchy feel, here the beach becomes a lot prettier, some people are making real nice thatched cabins on stilts, but when i was there they hadnt finished them yet! (feb-mar 2003)
there are other breaks i was told about but youd have to find them for yourself!
its a cool place beacause playa venao, cambutal and guanico is all quite close to each other so its a good place to be when there is waves.
