The small town of Montañita owes its popularity as a seaside hangout to the ocean, which beckons surfers with the longest right break in all of Ecuador. Montañita’s famous right break skirts the rocks at the north end of the beach.
High tides during February and May bring the best waves, but swells of up to 10 meters can come in June and July. Montañita Beach is only 30 minutes south of AZULUNA by bus or private car.
It is a must see for any surfer and a recommended day-trip for anyone who wants to experience a surfer’s beach. Montañita has many restaurants, surf-shops, bars, artisan shops, and a laid-back friendly atmosphere all year.
