You can find several breaks between Orzola and Arrieta but keep in mind that this area is extremely dangerous due to the sharp lava bottom. To get there park your car and walk few meters through the “malpaís”, a messy field of solidified lava rocks with sharp edges.
Below we describe the main breaks that you can easily reach by car.
