Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu is a fairly exposed beach break that has unreliable waves. Autumn and winter are the best times of year for waves. The best wind direction is from the northeast. Windswells are much more common than groundswells and the best wave direction is from the south southwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when the surf is up, crowds are unknown. Dangerous rips are a hazard of surfing here.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
