Calafia Surf Guide

Calafia is a fickle right hand point break located in front of the famous Hotel Calafia that requires a sizable south or west swell in order to break. Because of the rocks in the lineup and size requirement Calafia is recommended for advanced surfers only. The paddle out can be sketchy because of the rocky shoreline so booties are definitely recommended. When it is on it can be an amazing wave…the trick is to actually be there on one of the few days it is firing during the year. If the swell is small and Calafia is not breaking, be sure to check the right hander known as Bus Stops on the inside of the bay. It can be a fun option on a medium tide and south or west swell. Because it is sheltered from the prevailing northwest wind, Bus Stops usually stays cleaner than most spots along this stretch of coastline. To get to Calafia and Bus Stops, take the toll road past Rosarito and exit onto the free road just before the AM/PM gas station. Hotel Calafia is roughly 5 kilometers south and the takeoff zone is directly in front of the hotel at the tip of the point.
