Isla Ensenada, Panama

Hardly distinguishable on any map, this paradise lies five miles off the Panamanian coast. But after the discovery of some world-class breaks, this site has begun teeming with surfers.

To visit, you must join the Morro Negrito Surf Camp (which is actually two islands), which gives you access to the beach, in addition to the small breaks of the Big Island and the 10 challenging breaks of the Small Island. Since only 20 lucky surfers can join the camp at a time, no area is ever crowded. What's more, there are still beaches on the islands that have yet to be developed, so there are plenty of opportunities to explore, especially during the peak surfing months of April through October.

Biggest waves: 8 feet
