Las Flores Resort

The black sand beach of Las Flores is a dream for surfers and beach bums alike

Playa Las Flores is a dramatic, natural cove, hemmed in by severe topography and dense tropical flora, a playful black sand beach bordering a cauldron of whitewater and waves detonating in the background, a throwback in time to a prehistoric vision of Central America where the tropical waters of the Pacific Ocean meet the charcoal sands of ancient volcanic outflows.

 

Cast within this primordial setting, Las Flores Surf Club is an environmentally conscious hotel designed to have a minimal impact on the landscape and ecosystem. Las Flores Resort and Surf Club lies on a stunning 7-acre beachfront property directly in front of the famous surf break and palm tree-lined postcard beach known as Las Flores.

Highlights & Activities

Surf a world class break just outside your room
Managed by surfers for surfers, Las Flores Surf Club’s pride is its signature break “Las Flores” — a world-class, 300-meter-long, right-hand freight train that forms outside the point and peels across the sand bottom cove to the beach.

Learn to surf on world class break in El Salvador
Las Flores is a unique sand bottom point break that combines the best features of a point break (a long peeling wave) with the forgiving sand bottom of a beach break. While many surf schools teach you to surf at a semi-closeout beach break, at Las Flores you will actually learn to surf at a world class wave.
Kayak the mangrove tunnels of Jiquilisco Bay Biosphere Reserve
Explore the deep mangrove swamps of San Dionisio’s Island, paddling through vegetation tunnels alive with biodiversity and offering views of the grand Tecapa-Chinameca volcano range in the distance.
