It hosts the Mexpipe Challenge in February and an international surf contest in November. Professional and amateur surfers will get a pick of the best waves they have. There are several beaches in Puerto Escondido but the Playa Zicatela is not ideal for swimming as it is the main surfing beach with strong rip tides that will pull you in as well as some of the best and strongest waves in the world which topples even the popular Hawaii Banzai Pipeline. Even the most professional surfers have suffered accidents here so extreme caution is required for even the very experienced surfers. One area that has fast and challenging waves is the Point. The Far Bar at the end of the beach break is another surfing area with the most surfers since the waters there is deeper than other areas and the waves break further from the shore.
