La Punta in Zona del Centro is an exposed beach and breakwater break that has reasonably consistent surf. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. The best wind direction is from the south southwest with some shelter here from west winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal 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. Take care of - Rocks - Sharks.
