Surfing Punta Mita: Best Breaks in the North Shore

article-image

What’s the secret to making Punta Mita one of the world’s favorite surf destinations? Well — we actually have a few! First, the area has surf breaks that hit during differing weather and tide conditions, which means surfers are able to catch waves basically all year round. Second, the naturally-blessed geography surrounding the Punta Mita peninsula offers a variety of breaks: from shore breaks with gentle waves to reef breaks with larger and faster rides — as well as several of the longest and least crowded point breaks in Mexico. Third, the diversity of the types of breaks means there is something for every experience level, style, or expertise — from beginner to experienced surfers, short-boarders, long-boarders, paddle-boarders, body-boarders, and even kitesurfers!

At a Glance: Punta Mita Top Breaks:

El Anclote: this is by far the best place to learn to surf, and, age doesn’t matter! The access is very easy, located on El Anclote, the main beach in Punta de Mita. Kids, teenagers, adults, beginners, experienced surfers, everyone is welcome here. Learn more about El Anclote Surf Break here.


Palmitas: Formed mainly by sand, this beach break is essential for those experience surfers visiting the area, with both right and left breaks. This spot is much better with northern swells. You might be surprised to see the shapes of the waves. Best to avoid it during high tide. Learn more about Palmitas Surf Break here.


Veneros: Veneros, a classic reef break preferred for shortboard surfing but you can also enjoy longboard surfing here. Clean groundswells prevail and the ideal swell angle is from the southwest. Learn more about Veneros Surf Break here.
