About the Beaches for Surfing

Playa Potrero Grande (Santa Rosa National Park): 

Isolated and difficult to access, this coastline – better known as “Ollie’s Point” – is well worth it, because of its unparalleled characteristics. Its waves were recognized internationally by director Bruce Brown in the 1994 surfing movie: “The endless Summer II”. In addition, the surrounding area offers spectacular biodiversity.
