Located on kilometer 44 along the coastal road (Carretera del Litoral), “world famous” El Sunzal is considered by professional surfers as of the best surf breaks in the world. It’s also good for snorkeling and shallow scuba diving.

This beach has a rocky seabed, which makes the perfect habitat for oysters, lobsters and other crustaceans that can be seen in broad daylight, especially in the summer months (November to April).

There are gourmet and basic restaurants around. As in all of La Libertad, the specialty is fresh seafood.
