Are you a surf lover and looking for the best spot in Puerto Vallarta? Come south to Quimixto beach, here are the best waves!
Banderas Bay, which bathes Puerto Vallarta and all the beautiful nearby beaches, is the scenery of incredible landscapes and breathless sunsets. In some areas, it offers a calm sea, and in others, it has waves and adrenaline ideal for surfing.
Quimixto, located south of Puerto Vallarta, is one of the beaches with perfect conditions for surfing. It is a place with wave breaks from the right and left, with winds from the south and an optimal swell angle from southwest to west. The surf season runs from October to April, but there are also reliable waves during the summer months.
Locals and foreigners agree that it’s the spot with the best surfing in Banderas Bay, which is why it is the frequent venue for tournaments and competitions attended by surfers from all latitudes.
In addition to the ideal conditions offered by the sea, Quimixto is one of the beaches near Puerto Vallarta that can’t be accessed by land, it can only be reached by water taxis. This gives it a pretty convenient isolation and allows surfers to enjoy the waves more.
