Islitas Surf Guide

Islitas in Puerto Rico is a fairly exposed reef break that is usually a safe bet. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the south and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the northwest. No reef break here. Best around high tide. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days. Watch out for urchins and rocks.
