Playa Las Islitas
Just 5 miles (8 kilometers) from San Blas is Las Islitas, one of a few villages along Bahia Matanchen Bay, including Santa Cruz, Aticama, and San Blas. Playa Las Islitas is known for its unusually long surf break and a record-breaking 5,700-foot surfable wave documented in the Guinness Book of World Records. Deserted and quiet most of the time, its extended, consistent waves offer some of the best surfing conditions, especially during the summer – but be wary of rip tides, sharp rocks, and sharks. Since this secluded beach is in a curved, protected bay, it’s a perfect spot for yachts to anchor awhile.
