Tirúa is the southernmost coastal commune in the Arauco province, around ten hours by car south of Santiago. With a population of no more than ten thousand habitants, it’s a place that offers landscape views of the beautiful coastline along with the rural aspects, and hot springs in Quidico. However, the area is mainly characterised by its perfect bay, which being round with a rocky point and sandy reef helps make the lefthander safe and ideal for windsurfing. It’s a perfect spot for jumping with strong winds. It was a part of the International Windsurf Isla Mocha – Tirúa Traverse in 2012.
