Shipwreck Surf Guide

Shipwreck in Lanzarote is an exposed beach break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds blow from the south with some shelter here from northeast winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the north northwest. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Best around low tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Take care not to hit part of the wreck here.
