it is a place where swimming pools were constructed a long time ago on the brink of madness sea, that ended the only good wave that there was in the zone, now in the beach that is to its side by the North exit of the city, break waves that in the great days are strained behind the dock that protects it, nothing interesting.

Puerto De La Cruz - Martiánez

Weak swell - Martianez is also a safe beach but very small. Don't know if it gets better with more swell but this particular day it was not worth to get wet.

go for the left spot - While I was there, the left spot that anonymous mentions looked pretty decent. Sadly I didn't have a chance to surf it. There were only 2 body boarders (weekday) so plenty of room, but I can imagine that it gets crowded with locals in the weekends. I saw a lot of body boarders headed that way in Santa Cruz on Saturday.

crowded but decent - there are 2 (maybe even 3) surfable spots at this beach. the most obvious one is the sheltered bay on the left side. if the swell gets really big outside the stonewall and the tide comes in, you might catch some beautiful long waves starting at the rocks that seperate the sheltered from the semi-sheltered part, while watching the huge winter swell running in on the outside. the only problem is that the spot is incredibly crowded on weekends (tons of body- and longboarders), and that it only gets waves if the swell is really big. it doesn't work very good on low tide because the artificial reef outside blocks all waves. the second spot is on the right side of the bay and while not directly facing the swell is still not as sheltered as the first spot. when i was there, it had decent but short waves. i would only recommand it to experienced surfers, because you have to get out of the wave very quick, otherwise you hit the stoney beach. the last spot is right at the corner of the stone wall, right before the artificial stone reef. its a short and usually huge ride. i didn't try it coz i was scared of the stones, but i saw some bodyboarders riding some short ~9ft waves there.
