Whether you’ve never paddled out before, or regularly ride the barrel, The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort is point zero for getting stoked. The state of Nayarit—where Punta Mita is located—is a known haven for year-round, warm-water surf.
Punta Mita itself has four breaks off its shores (La Lancha, Anclote, El Faro and the Cove), with another three—Los Veneros and Punta Burros) in close proximity. These breaks are best for longboarding, but frequent swells will kick up the action a few notches for short-boarders as well. Because the beaches in Punta Mita are more challenging to access (due to the gated community on its shores) these breaks tend to be less crowded.
Nearby Sayulita is the most popular surf spot in the area—as the whole village is steeped in surf culture. There’s a great right beach break right in the center of town that’s perfect for beginners or longboard riders, as well as a fast left break for rippers. Just be ware not to drop in on the locals, a number of which are among Mexico’s top surf pros.
Nayarit’s waves are smaller in summer months, but periodic storms will up the ante, and there are generally ridable conditions year-round. Offshore reef breaks are accessible by panga boats, readily available for hire.
The St. Regis Concierge can connect you with lessons, board rentals and current wave reports.
