  • Rarely, but very possible, get up 30 minutes before sunrise. Sit on Zenith Beach, watch the waves crash into the shore, guaranteed. Not guaranteed, is seeing a school of young dolphins, catching the waves. The young dolphins catch the waves as the wave takes shape and becomes clear. You get a direct look down view of the dolphins. The dolphins continue to catch the wave until just prior to the wave breaking and they suddenly break off (synchronising to the same side st yhe same time) and swim seawards to catch the next big waves. Nature at its best!!! Progressively the Sun rises turning the aqua blue waters onto golden waves and back again over a one hour transition time, aqua to Gold. Gold to aqua!! After the morning spectacular, you go surfing the very same waves. If you are super lucky, the young dolphins will join you. These friendly dolphins will try to push you off their wave with their surprisingly rough noses.
