The northern spots of the island run during the winter from October to April while the south coast receives the swell during the summer months. Each side has spots more or less suitable for all levels, everyone will find his happiness!
Located north of the island, Almáciga is one of Tenerife's most famous spots. It is active a good part of the year and offers powerful waves and barrels at all levels of surfers. In the vicinity of Santa Cruz, there are also Los Dos Hermanos, Baja de Martiánez and Benijo spots, reserved for intermediate and expert surfers with big barrels when the swell returns. For beginners, Martianez is ideal in summer with long, rather gentle lines. The Izquierda del Conquistador is also a good option as well as Bajamar with its powerful and long wave suitable for all levels.
To the south, La Derecha, Chickens, El Bunker, El Palmar and El Dedo are reserved for good surfers. In these, be careful with the height of the waves and the reef! In addition, in the same zone, the debutants will be able to perfect themselves in the spots of Las Américas, El Medio, La Fitenia and La Piscinia. There are waves all year round and they are easy and perfect to learn and perfect.
A fact to keep in mind: in certain spots, local surfers do not like to share their waves, so sometimes the environment can become problematic. But you won't have this problem when you go with a surf camp !
