Punta Abreojos 8 out of 10 based on 1 Reviews. 1 user reviews.

A diamond among many gems in Baja California, the epic right hand point break at Punta Abreojos will, on a good day, easily peel for 100 to 200 meters (or more).

Generally a fast and hollow wave, Punta Abreojos breaks best when solid south to southwest groundswells produce overhead or larger waves.  The western most section of the wave, Razors, picks up the most swell and is always the largest.  Moving east is Burgers, which will be smaller and, in general, the further you move east into the bay, the smaller the waves are.  Punta Abreojos approaches perfection at overhead to double overhead from the south to southwest with north winds when the different sections combine into one long, barreling, wall racing adventure of a wave that will run into the sandy bay.

Punta Abreojos will also howl offshore in the afternoon summer winds and is, as such, very popular with kitesurfers and windsurfers.

Beware of the unforgiving rock reef even at high tide.

The waves at Punta Abreojos are suitable for more experienced surfers.

Approximately 87 km's (54 miles) from the Mex 1 highway exit - fill up with petrol (gasoline) before you make the trek. Turn at the sign for Rancho Fisher onto Baja California Sur Campo Fisher - Punta Abreojos and follow to the point.
