Playa de Esquinzo - Remote paradise for surfers under a monumental rock-face

Playa de Esquinzo is a relatively remote beach situated about six kilometres south of El Cotillo and can only be reached via a gravel road. The reward for the rather inconvenient journey is an isolated surfing paradise. This wild, natural bay nestles between the mouth of a dry riverbed and cliffs of about 15 metres in height. Access to the beach is not easy, along the cliffs, over a sandy hill and just before you reach the beach you have to climb over some rocks, which is quite a balancing act when you are carrying a surfboard. The beige-coloured sandy beach stretches for about 300 metres and there are large black stones and pieces of rock scattered around near the cliffs, but rather than being a hindrance these add to the picturesque scenery. Surfing fans will not be able to resist the large, crashing waves here, but the bay is only really suitable for more experienced surfers. Care has also to be taken with the strong currents, the high waves and the rocks in the water when swimming.
