Just before the Interamericana reaches the coastline, a turnoff immediately east of the town of Bejuco leads to the tiny sliver of peninsula known as Punta Chame. The 28km-long road out to the sea winds past rolling hills before opening up to flat land that consists mainly of shrimp farms and mangroves. The brackish water makes farming near impossible, though the environment here is unique to this region, and well worth a detour.
Punta Chame is receiving more vacation homes and weekenders since the single road in to the long, 300m-wide peninsula was paved. To the north of the peninsula, a scenic but muddy bay is popular with windsurfers and kitesurfers from December to April, during the trade-wind season. Outside of those months wakeboarding and stand-up paddling takes over.
