Head south on the main highway out of Playa Hermosa, you will see some signs for Esterillos about 5-10 km south of Hermosa (distance estimated.) Just drive to the coast and park it under a tree.

This is a beachbreak with lava reef fingers that stick out to see. WAVE MAGNET. This place picks up even more swell than Hrmosa and has different sections of reef breaking all the way to probably 1/2 mile offshore.
Kind of shifty, somewhat hard to read, but you can get big long waves that peel and reform. When its blown out in the afternoon it can be big but not as powerful. Just be careful on the low tides of the sharp bottom.
Fun afternoon spot. Uncrowded, long, and usually big. This place is also good whenever its glassy, but i usually surfed it when it was kinda onshore.

the spot is sweet - I had a blast at this spot. Just me and a friend, no one else out. When it gets bigger it's kind of creepy, hard to read. I often got the feeling we weren't alone, I think the man in the grey suit may have been lurking because of all the fishing activity.It is deffinately worth surfing though,it can really crank at times. If you don't like crowds check this spot out before its too late. Matapalo is a good spot too, It's just a beach break off the beaten path full of german enviro tourists and dikes, no surfers, the waves are all yours.
