Review of Playa Poneloya

Playa Poneloya

Imagine miles of white sand and pounding waves with no one around. I took a picture one day of three people on the beach as it was a huge crowd. It is nirvana if you are a surfer. For us short people who don't surf, plan on going in the water during low tide.

Got to see a sunset on the beach and it was beautiful. Lots of locals frequent the area as well as surfers (the only ones who can really navigate the water there; not ideal for swimming) as well as tourists, so a nice blend.

On weekdays, this huge beach is almost deserted! Stay at Hostal del Pulpo. It's not the most luxurious, but right on the beach. Carlos who runs it, is very nice and speaks good english.

Worth doing on a day trip from Leon, with refreshing ocean breezes, but swimming is not recommended due to the rip tides.

Dangerous swimming but fun walking on the beach. Good for surfers. Had wonderful meal at hotel right on beach.
