For travellers and surfers seeking a place off the beaten track, El Sal's Sunzal is just the ticket. Beachside, surf-based conversations drift towards lazy ears, as fresh-from-the-water kids discuss their latest session. Consistent wave sets are well-suited for beginners, who can rent boards for $10 and try their hand at the sport.
A rookie myself, I loved heading out at sunset, when the sky's rosy hues skipped out across the waves. It's the perfect end to a sun-drenched day.
