Punta Mita Surf – Just Steps from Villa Lunada


Walk out the back deck of Villa Lunada and down your own private trail to El Faro, one of the best surf breaks in Punta Mita…

Punta Mita Surf Guide

Villa Lunada is an ideal Mexico surfing oasis for beginning to advanced surfers. We’re located directly on El Faro, a high quality right point break often compared to Malibu, CA.

Our Punta Mita surf concierge may arrange rental surfboards and boats to transport you to the best breaks on any given day, and lessons are easily arranged through our partner property Hotel Cinco.

Quick Guide to Punta Mita’s Local Surfing Breaks

El Faro & The Cove

Villa Lunada is located right above this break at Punta Mita Point. Literally grab your board, walk down a short trail, and you are there. This is a guide/local favorite and has become crowded… so go early or stay late.

El Anclote

This is the beginner break right in front of our partner property Hotel Cinco, so as a guest of Villa Lunada, you are welcome to hang out at the hotel, use our surf and stand up paddleboards, and book an instructor with our concierge. This break is perfect for beginners: slow and long with a mellow pitch.

La Lancha

About a mile an a half south of Hotel Cinco/El Anclote. You can walk there in about 40 minutes or take a short Panga ride. This wave will often still be going when everything else is flat. Best on incoming and outgoing tide. Watch out for coral heads.


Ten minutes south of Hotel Cinco/El Anclote in front of the Palladium Vallarta Resort. If you drive, you can park outside of the resort and walk along a trail by the fence to the left. This is many long-boarders’ favorite break in the area. Best at high tide.

Surfing by Boat

There is limited land access to the majority of surf spots in the Punta Mita area, so taking out a local panga is oftentimes the best way to reach the most epic locations. Our concierge staff at Hotel Cinco will connect you with the area’s best local surfing guides and we always have a boat ready to go. These guys were born and raised in Punta Mita and know how to read wave size, swell direction and tides to bring experienced surfers to the best surfing spots of the day.

Punta Mita surf opportunities abound whether you are a beginner, an intermediate, or an expert. We have our own private instructors that can take your surfing to the next level and act as your guides while you’re enjoying all the surfing the area has to offer.
