The main attraction at this beach is surfing; the waves are very consistent almost the entire year and are suitable for all surfers, from experienced ones to beginners.

At Mizata beach, you will find a few breaks from where to choose from and surf; each one of these breaks has different levels and conditions depending on the tide. So, before surfing Mizata, check with the locals to learn what to expect.

Another reason people go to Mizata beach is the uncrowded waves. Quite often, you will find yourself alone at the beach on in the water. It is a significant change from other top surf spots nearby, such as El Tunco beach or Punta Roca beach.

If you are looking for a surf spot with more surfers or a party atmosphere, this beach is not for you. Mizata beach is ideal for those just looking to surf and relax with family, friends, or alone.

Mizata beach is divided by a river mouth; this river makes one side of the beach a rocky pointbreak great for surfing. The opposite side is an all-embracing sandy beach ideal for relaxing and having fun. All things considered, the surf at Mizata beach is one of the most consistent that you will find in the country.
