Beach
Surfers will want to go off the beaten path and head to Playa Avellana, a laid-back white sand beach with world-class waves up to 5.5 m (18 ft) tall. Locally known as "Little Hawaii" the beach is popular with surfers of all skill levels who flock to the secluded stretch of sand at high tide. Because of the strong currents swimming not recommended, but the beach is good for lounging. Hang out at the iconic bar and restaurant hidden in the thick shade of palm trees, where a resident pig named Lola will welcome you.
