Isla Natividad Surf Break – Best Break Barrels in the World

Surfing Isla Natividad

Isla Natividad is a small, desolate island featuring “Open Doors.” Isla Natividad is one of the best beach break barrels in the world. There are actually several different breaks on the island, but “Open Doors” is the best and most famous. You can only reach the island by airplane or boat, making it usually uncrowded. The winds howl offshore which make for excellent rights and lefts that are longer and hold up more than other breaks. There is nothing to do on Isla Natividad, so if there are no waves don’t even bother going there.
