Puerto Cruz in Isla Margarita is a fairly exposed point break that only works when conditions are just right. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. The best wind direction is from the southeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the northeast. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Rarely crowded here. Take care of rocks and sharks.
