Frente A Bahia in Manabi is a reasonably exposed beach break that has inconsistent surf. Winter and spring are the optimum times of year to visit. The best wind direction is from the east southeast. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. The beach breaks are all lefts. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Surfing here means negotiating dangerous rips.
