Surf Conditions and equipment suggestions
Villa Playa Maria is located directly on Maria's beach where waves vary from friendly beginner to advanced depending on swell size and conditions. Maria’s beach is made up of a handful of A-frame peaks and righthand breaks that start at the Lighthouse point and span over 400 yards down the beach connecting to Puerto Rico’s world famous big wave spot, "Tres Palmas".
