Guana Bay Surf Guide

Guana Bay on the East Coast is an exposed beach break that is often working. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. Offshore winds blow from the west. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the best swell direction is from the east. Waves at the beach break both left and right. Rarely crowded here. Be wary of rips - they make surfing here dangerous.

We hope you find the new 12-day forecasts and additional details useful.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
