Frente A Bahia in Manabi is a quite exposed beach break that only works once in a while. Winter and spring are the favoured times of year to visit. Ideal winds are from the east southeast. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. Prevailing left breaking waves at the beach break. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Watch out for dangerous rips.
