Playa Negra is one of Costa Rica’s most sought after surf spots. Its famous right-hand barrel is formed by a narrow channel between rocks where the surf rushes over a shallow rocky bottom. The surf of Playa Negra is very consistent year-round and is famous in the surfing world since it was featured in the surf cult movie Endless Summer II. Great surfing locations are plentiful in the area, including Little Hawaii on Playa Avellanas, a short 10-minute drive away.
