Playa Las Flores is located in the department of San Miguel in the East side of the pacific coast line of El Salvador, Playa Las Flores had been one of the main surf destination in El Salvador since several years ago, surf resorts and hotels with first class services available.

Nice sandy beach next to the world class point-break “Las Flores”, and El cuco beach town in San Miguel department, this is the best surfing spot in all of the eastern part of El Salvador a region known as “The Wild East” .  In addition to Las Flores, there are other breaks (Punta Mango, La Vaca, Toro de Oro, El Cuco Beach-break, Punta Bongo). Both Punta Mango and Punta Bongo are only accessible by boat. The “Wild East,” is El Salvador´s new surfing frontier with pristine and beautiful places. Offering world-class breaks, it is an excellent complement for your surf trip to El Salvador

The Surf

Very consistent right point break. It is a sand point 7 minutes from the hotel that breaks mechanically with a hollow takeoff at low tide (softer at high tide) and very long rides up to 300m.
The wave has many personalities depending on the swell size and tide. On swells of 6-8ft (faces) or bigger and lower tides it is a serious wave for experienced surfers (it has been compared to Jeffrey’s Bay and Bells), and the takeoff is critical as well as competitive, with surfers lining up and dropping in behind the rocks, and a fall here has consequences. On small to moderate swells (3-5 ft faces), or fuller tides, Las Flores is a classic sand point break, super fun on a shortboard, fish, or longboard, with long open faces and wackable wall sections comparable to a good day at Rincon or Noosa. The break can shut down almost entirely at high tide if there is not much swell, but on the biggest of swells the high tide is more manageable..
