A much needed break from tourism, Lobitos is a bit remote. There’s not much here apart from surf breaks, hostels and nodding donkeys. There’s a lot of oil around these parts!
I came to check it out and do some surfing, or try to surf! My ribs feel okay, but the main break is quite a fast left handed point break, and my skills are not quite up to it. The water is cold and a full wetsuit is very much needed. It’s like British summer time sea temperature, but with good winter waves!
A very cool place, but with almost nothing here. Old oil platforms dot the horizon, and there’s the odd dead sea lion on the beach apparently.
The hostel was an old colonial house on a hill over looking the bay. It had running water most of the time, but was really breezy with old floorboards and most of the rooms have doors to the outside. I was given a cheap private room with standard death trap shower on suite.
I’d definitely come back here more prepared and with my own kit!Read more
