Activities in Banderas Bay

There is so much to experience in Banderas Bay it is a little overwhelming! The following list of available activities will get you headed in the right direction. Once you have decided on the activity you might enjoy then we can get you lined up with the best service providers in the area.

Punta Mita - SurfingSurfing

Surfing in the area of Punta Mita/Costa Banderas.

The northern arm of Banderas Bay is comprised of a series of secluded coves and beautiful beaches. Many of our visitor’s favorite activities involve the ocean and water sports.

There are some excellent surf breaks in the North Shore. Surf is found year round but winter, and a west swell, produces the best surf. The west swell wraps the point at Punta Mita and a prevailing offshore breeze produces waves that pour over numerous reef and beach breaks.

Grab a cup of coffee and make your first surf check right in front of the house. Although not as consistent as some other local spots, Paradise Coves picks up a southwest to west swell and offers fun long boarding. On the large winter swells, the outer reef is one of the best surf breaks in the bay.

The numerous surf spots in Costa Banderas-Punta Mita are generally uncrowded so you can get in the water and have plenty of space for your own self. Nearby breaks that offer good surf include La Lancha, a consistent reef peak less than two miles west of Paradise Coves and the mellow rolling waves at El Anclote. Access to many other spots is best accomplished by boat. Tzauhi (Zowie) owner of Mictlan Surf, is an accomplished surfer and guide. You can arrange to be picked up right at Paradise Coves to start your surf excursion to the best spot for the day.
