You can park your car at Mizata Point Resort, shower and access the beach if you eat at the resturant after surfing. The Point takes a little time to figure out the wave but once you do it is well worth it.
Mizata is a hidden jewel of the surf spots in El Salvador. It has a surfable wave close to 330 days a year. It is a safe spot with friendly local surfers. It doesn't get much more uncrowded anywhere. Mizata Point Resort is a super place to stay and have first shot at the wave each morning. It is a great place to bring your wife or Gf as it has all the amenities of home.
Mizata is a great,consistent, uncrowded wave, safe and very quiet. It is well worth your time and effort to surf it and stay there.

Mizata Epic Spot - Classic wave. Need to be in a good shape. Hollow and powerful, barrel into a short left and the right gives good sections to cut back´s and tail slide´s.
Uncrowded. Take the road.

People are tripping! Mizata is the SHIT! - It's more like one wave at Mizata is worth 10 at SUNZAL! Unless of course you're fat and ride a longboard and love slow burgery waves and like to kick it with other longboarder barnies in the lineup then Sunzal is the shit! I can't say enough good about this place! Stayed a week at the Mizata Surf Lodge in early June and scored sick totally uncrowded waves everday of our trip! It blows me away that an area with this high of quality waves is completely uncrowded.
