Surfing Majahual

Another well kept surfing secret around Huatulco bays is Majahual beach. This nice spot is located next to El Mojon beach, about 20 kilometers from Huatulco, heading to Salina Cruz.

What do surfers really expect when visiting a new beach? Many will say that an uncrowded spot will be perfect. Others will dare to mention that hollow barrels make the perfect spot. Others will prefer big waves. It is true that surfers are always searching for new rides but, in order to reach those places, some issues have to be taken into consideration; first at all, Majahual is called a beach for locals, you have to pass a small, and thorny, hill to get to the beach. By the way, the sight from the top of the hill is just amazing; one could see the wave, breaking from the point of the rocks, to the right, perfect and greenish.

Is this only a local spot? Maybe it is not true. Many surfers from other countries visit Majahual when swells hit the beach. The important thing is that maybe those skillful surfers try to catch the best waves and sometimes not only the best ones if not, all the waves possible. So, if you are a talented surfer and come to this beach, try to not be a jerk in the water, everyone wants to catch some waves, remember, it is not a competition.

Majahual has a beautiful wetland full of mangroves and lush vegetation. There are two hidden ranches. At one of them people grew lemon trees. There was a lemon oil factory at this place, nowadays it is still possible to see the old rusty cauldrons.

The wave is similar to El Mojon, fast and hollow. It is truly amazing how big walls of water approach to the beach, breaking neatly, always inviting to ride. It is just another beautiful point for surfing, a place full of natural life and good waves to spend such a fun daylong.
