What about surfing?
Experience unforgettable surfing in one of Nicaragua’s premier surf spots, Playa Maderas. The surf spot offers rippable waves for beginning to more advanced surfers. The beach consists of soft white sand, with some rocky areas creating interesting tidal pools to explore.
From the surfer’s point of view Playa Maderas has a slow wave in reasonably deep water, with four breaks getting hollow on a rising tide – rated good for beginners. It’s a beach offering hollow lefts and rights that handles long period swells quite well. Check out the surf report for Playa Maderas on Magic Seaweed.
