El Playon in Zona del Centro is a sheltered beach and breakwater break that has consistent surf. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. Works best in offshore winds from the south southwest with some shelter here from west winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the north northeast. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Good surf at all stages of the tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Beware of rips, jetty.
