The easiest way is to park in the parking lot of the Hotel Meridien President. Then ask for the beach and you'll see the spot just on its left. The only problem is that you might need to pay some money to enter in the hotel.

 Additional Information

Good alternative when N'gor island's right is overcrowded. Usually this spot works as a left, less often as a right. Being a little bit isolated from the other spots, people don't think to check it for waves. So it's always a good idea to take a few minutes to take a look. Avoid to surf this wave after the rain (pollution from the fishermen village and some Mako sharks...)

Atmosphere

Not crowded, no one on the beach to witness your 35 seconds-tube, no babes on the beach waiting for you. You'll be by yourself for your own pleasure!
