A Nicaragua Surf Camp at The Beach

Considered the mecca of Popoyo, this relaxed bay gives consistent rolls to get up to speed, craft your style and live the dream. With perfect left-hand point breaks, you’ll have everything you need to master the art of surfing, without the pressure of extreme waves.

5 World Class Surf Breaks for Experienced Surfers

Located central to all of Popoyo’s best surf breaks, our Nicaragua Surf Camp offers more than just beginner waves. If you’re a more experienced surfer, then we’re just a walk away from 5 world class surf breaks:

Popoyo’s Main Surf Break

Picturesque and peaky reef break gives various waves for all skill levels within just a short walk of our hotel, Magnific Rock. With symmetrical a-frames, carvable walls and the chance for head duck or barrels, this is the Popoyo’s surfing hotspot.

Here, the seabed is made up of a combination of submerged reef and sand. Truly stunning, our guests often take the trip here once they’ve mastered Beginner’s Bay.

Popoyo Outer Reef

Outer Reef is a World Class heavy, heaving wall. This is not for the faint-hearted. Known as the bigger and angrier brother of waves that break off the nearby shores, these monstrous waves are located within walking distance of Magnific Rock.

Tempting the bravest of surfers, we regularly have guests at our hotel who return in awe of the iconic 20-foot faces. If you’ve seen a photo of heavy Nicaragua surf, it was probably taken here.

Santana’s Surf Spot

Santana’s surf spot is a classic, central American break with fast, pumping hollow beach break which catches most swells. During larger swells, this location turns into a barreling playground. This is a hotspot for local rippers, with safety away from the boats that try to avoid the nearby rocks.

Play Colorado

Within walking distance of Magnific Rock is a location that many consider to be the best barrel in Nicaragua. With steady offshore winds from Lake Nicaragua, this wave provides perfect tubes year-round. Want to shred a sand bottom barrel? This is your chance!

Lances Left

Catch the longest wave of your life at Lances Left. Located near to our Nicaragua Surf Camp, this is great for every level of surfer. Peeling off a remote headland, this location provides wave breaks in almost any swell direction and is protected from harsh winds.
