Description

La Izquierda is without a doubt, one of the best waves in Tenerife and one of our favorites.

It’s steep, fast, short and very intense, with a break at all tide stages.

Waves are consistent from autumn to spring but in summer the sea is usually smooth. In spite of its name, “The Left” in English, you can also find rights here.

La Izquierda is a beach with volcanic rocks level with the break; hence, we recommend leaving the wave as soon as possible.

As there is only one peak on this beach, there may be a lot of surfers.
