The waves that rise here are really good. In winter this is an spectacular destination with west and northwest swells. Predominant winds come from the northwest and the point break is powerful. Tonel is not a very crowded beach and it is an ideal place to disconnect and immerse yourself in the present.



Access to this beach of fast and hollow waves which surprise you from the left side, is along a curious stairway. The best time to surf here is in winter, when the north winds arrive. It’s better with mid-tides  – and be careful with the currents!


It’s better in the wintertime, and the best wind direction is from northeast. The best swell is from the northwest and west . After surfing you can swim and submerge yourself in the depths of the Atlantic in an incredible submarine route through its caves.

The immensity of the beautiful cliffs is all-embracing. The magic of this place resides in the rhythm of its tides, as when the tide is low, this beach becomes one with that of Castelejo. When tide rises, the magnificent rocks split them and create the natural border again.
