Surfing Bahia Solano Colombia
SURFING EL VALLE (BAHIA SOLANO), COLOMBIA
Bahia Solano (Solano Bay) is a small Colombian holiday ecological vacation area in the Pacific ocean popular for it's nearby beaches, whale watching, deep sea fishing, scuba diving and surfing.
There is smaller neighboring town of El Valle which can be reached via a road to the south. El Valle has excellent beaches such as Playa El Almejal and La Bocana, which are great for surfing.
Coco Loco Surf Camping is a lodge / hostel that is strategically located in between the 2 surfing beach breaks of El Almejal and La Bocana. These are fast lefts and rights that can reach up to 6meters height during the winter season, and medium size waves for the rest of the year that are ideal for learning and enjoying surfing. El Valle has the potential to have excellent surfable waves almost all year-found in high or low tides.
The second semester of the year has the best wind conditions to create world class waves.
