Las Penitas is the most popular surfing beach near the colonial city of Leon. The lineup is spread out enough to handle a small crowd and still be quite fun. It can produce adequate, punchy left walls that are carvable and the right that is fed from the nearby river mouth can get good! Suitable for most levels of surfers depending on the size. On head high + swells it can be a semi-powerful wave. It works from waist high to a couple feet overhead. There are other breaks in the area. This is a great spot to hit after (or before) your tour of Leon that we feature in our surf adventures.
