Bikini in South Uruguay is an exposed beach and point break that has very reliable surf and works all around the year. The best wind direction is from the north northeast. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the south. The beach break provides left and right handers and also offers a left hand point break too. Good surf at all stages of the tide. A popular wave that can get growded. Take care of urchins, rips, rocks and locals.

This is the Surf-Forecast page for Bikini, South. Use the tab navigation above to view Bikini sea temperature, Bikini photographs, Bikini detailed swell predictions, wind and weather forecasts, Bikini webcams, current wind from South live weather stations and Bikini tide predictions. The Uruguay swell maps link will open up the big picture showing Uruguay and the surrounding seas. These swell maps can be animated to show the different swell components, wave energy, wave period, wave heights, together with wind and weather forecasts, current weather and sea state observations from Uruguay wave-buoys, passing ships and coastal weather stations. Each of the forecast pages for this surf break feature a global and regional wavefinder tool to locate the best surf conditions in the area around Bikini.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
