Information about Pozo, what's done there and who does it
Waves, Bump n Jump
Stone beach on the SE coast of Gran Canaria, the best period is between may and the end of august (3.7-4.2 weather most of the time), but it’s windy nearly all year long - not as strong and regular as during the summer.
Between February-May and September-November, the wind is lighter (sails from 4.2-5.3) and not as regular (around 3-4 days per week) but this is the period with the best waves.
It’s not a dangerous beach but you need to be able to gybe and waterstart properly. There are a lot of rocks and people-in the summer it gets crowded sometimes. When there’s waves you have to keep an eye on the shorebreak during high tide. It’s easy to find the place (sign on the highway), either if you come from the north (Las Palmas, Airport) or from the south, take the exit “Vecindario-Pozo Izquierdo” and then take the road towards the sea, you can park just there and rig next to the car while you check the conditions.
