JO-C - Spent 2 weeks in the old hotel 'Hotel le bourgainville' directly opposite last year with my girlfriend, might of been the luckiest hotel booking ever made. a good 200 yard paddle out to the reef; wave is super powerful a right hand race track. Not sure why it says left on the description; you'd have to be mad. Similar to HT's in the Mentawaii islands.
