Playa Los Cedros is located a little further south than Playa Las Manchas (a ten-minute drive) along the route to Cabuya, just passing Rio Miguelon and Miguelon beach. Playa Los Cedros is another long and sandy beach that changes its look according to the tide conditions. It is a superb point break surf spot and hosts the annual surf competition in July.
At low tide, you’ll see a lot of rocks. At high tide, you’ll see a perfect, sandy beach stretching 300 yards or so toward Cabuya and a phenomenal right-handed point break. Large shoals of fish make Los Cedros a favorite hunting spot for seabirds, especially big pelicans and frigate birds. When low tide meets the sunset, pink and orange reflective pools make way from the rocks.
Because of the rocks, the window of opportunity for surfing is only a few hours before and after high tide. On a good day, it’s truly an epic spot and one of the local preferred surfing spots, a nice spectacle to see. Because of the rocks in the water, it’s a good idea to take a look at it at low tide so you can see where the rocks are. They are aligned in an “L” shape and fairly easy to avoid. Ask a local where they are if you aren’t sure.
