El Tunco Surf 

Playa El Tunco is a little surf village west of Puerto La Libertad with beautiful black sand beaches. Only a few years ago this place was unknown and quiet, but is now the most visited town of El Salvador – by backpackers and surfers all year long. The village hosts plenty of hostels, restaurants and bars to keep you busy when not surfing.
