Crystal-Clear Waters

One of La Lancha's standout features is its crystal-clear waters, providing a contrast to the water issues faced by nearby areas like Sayulita. The dedication to environmental conservation makes La Lancha not just a surf destination but a responsible and sustainable one. Additionally, the bay serves as a haven for marine life; during the season, you might get visits from turtles, dolphins, and whales while surfing! In the mangroves, you will find many bird species and crocodiles. This makes La Lancha not just a surf destination but also for nature enthusiasts.
