Punta Cabra is just a few kilometers north of Ejido Erindera where the Coyote Cals hostel is located. There are two fun and very different waves to be surfed here. On the north side of Punta Cabra is Long Beach (sometimes called Sunset Beach), which is a beachbreak wave with a variety of peaks to choose from. On the south side of the point is Half Moon Bay, which is a beachbreak cove and popular place for campers to set up for a while. The nice thing about Punta Cabra is that depending on the wind and swell direction one of the two spots should have waves. Half Moon Bay is more open to south/southwest swells and the point protects it from the prevailing north wind. Long beach is more open and will pick up everything from a southwest to a northwest swell and will generally be cleaner if there is a south wind blowing. Either way, Punta Cabra is a great option for both surfing and camping. Punta Cabra is also a nice option because it is suitable for beginners but fun for experienced surfers as well. To get to Punta Cabra, head south out of Ensenada for 78 kilometers. The exit is clearly marked by the Coyote Cal's sign at the turnoff (pictured below).
