Welcome to El Tránsito
This little fishing village on the coast between León and Managua sits on a hill slope around a near-perfect crescent bay. There’s a strong undertow, but to the south, near the lava flows, there are protected swimming holes. El Tránsito has gained popularity with surfers, since there's something for all abilities here: four consistent year-round beach breaks. Pistols, Pangas and Main are rights and lefts, while the Corner is left; there's also a hollow left for advanced surfers 40 minutes up the coast, and the swells are particularly powerful April to June.
