Welcome to Concepción Bamba
The coast west from Salina Cruz is spectacular, with long, sweeping sandy beaches, monster dunes and forested mountains rising just inland. It has surfers in raptures for its long-peeling, sand-bottom, right-hand point breaks and several beach and jetty breaks. Concepción Bamba, or La Bamba as it's known, 40km west of Salina Cruz, sits on a 6km beach with two point breaks in the middle, and stands out because it's home to easily the area's most appealing accommodations. The surfing season is from about March to October, but swells don't come every day so check the forecasts.
There's a community turtle camp on the beach, where turtle eggs (laid between October and March) are collected and incubated in a protected enclosure, with hatchlings being released into the ocean after about six weeks.
