Surf Beaches

RINCON SURF SPOTS & BEACH INFORMATION

Antonio’s Beach

Antonio’s produces fun rights and lefts that break over a long stretch of reef. There are 2 main takeoff spots: one is in front of a now abandoned restaurant that used to be The Landing, and the second is a long walk north to the river mouth. There is a mellow area between these 2 takeoff spots, which makes the paddle out much easier. Antonio’s is onshore in the prevailing afternoon trade winds, so you will need to get up early to catch it clean and lined-up. But, there is plenty of room to spread out. Not known as a really hollow wave, Antonio’s breaks best on a Northwest swell, which produces very fun, workable rights that peel down the beach.

Sandy Beach

Just a few steps south from the parking lot at Antonio’s Beach. Sandy Beach needs a nice Northwest swell and a light south wind to hit its true potential. When the conditions come together, long, workable lefts peel down the reef. Paddle out directly in-front of the parking lot, or walk south just as the beach cuts into a small cove, here the paddle out will be easiest.

Pool’s Beach

Not one of the major surf spots in Rincon, Pools Beach does have a few scattered reef breaks that can be fun. Pools Beach is the first spot you hit heading south as you round the Puntas corner of Rincon. Its protected from the Northeast Trade Winds, but needs a good Northwest swell to really break, in-fact, the more west in the swell the better as the break is tucked into the corner. Good for beginners.

Domes

Sitting directly in-front of the old Rincon Nuclear Power Plant (which closed in the 1970’s), Domes is one of the better, more popular surf spots in Rincon. Domes is one of the first spots that you hit as your round the Puntas corner of Rincon, and is the furtherst spot out on the point, which is great because it picks-up more swell that the surrounding breaks. However, its sits in a small bay and as the swell rises, so do the currents which cause larger swells to break in sections. Although Domes is often bigger than surrounding breaks, it is not known for being a hollow wave, but more for speedy righthanders and powerful carving. Domes is semi-protected from the Northeast tradewinds, but is often best to surf here in the morning. Park right on the beach, right in-front of the wave.

Indicators

Located just south of Domes, in-front of the Rincon Lighthouse. This is a hairy wave: the takeoff is in-front of a big rock and as you race down the line you will feel the wave standin up as you head into exposed reef… so, be ready to bail. In my opinion, Indicators is just that, an indicaton of oncoming sets into Maria’s.

Maria’s

A true gem on the Rincon coast, Maria’s is one of the most recognized waves in the Caribbean. Not a particularly hollow wave, Maria’s is a righthand point/reef break that produces long, perfect peeling walls. Maria’s is best on a solid Northwest swell, and is offshore in the prevailing East-Northeast tradewinds.

Tres Palmas

The Caribbean’s most famous and dependable big wave spot. Tres Palmas is a legendary right-hand reef break that needs a big swell to start showing. Generally, it doesn’t start breaking until its double-overhead. Not to worry, there is a wide channel that leads out to the lineup.

Little Malibu

Even more fickle than Tres Palmas, Little Malibu needs a big Northwest swell to start breaking. But, don’t let the name fool you, this is not a Caribbean sequel to the mushy, longboard wave found in Southern California. Little Malibu is a very hollow and speedy righthander that breaks over sharp coral in very shallow water. When breaking, its typically littered with bodyboarders or surfers looking for speedy tubes.
