Another sport that is also popular in Los Realejos is surfing. Thanks to the surf enthusiasts the Socorro Beach has made a name for itself across Europe.
There are waves all year round and perfect water temperatures, making this the ideal spot to go for a swim or surf the waves.
There are four seasons, two of which are calmer. The first of these two is from April to March and waves are about 1 – 3 metres high. The second of these is from September to November and waves are about 2 – 3 metres high. From December to March the tides are stronger and the waves are 2 – 5 metres high. However, the waves can get to 8 metres high with gusts of wind.
Every year from May to September, the beach plays host to several local, national and international surfing, body board and long board championships.
