Beautiful isoalted long beach, wave breaks at a normal 4-5ft. The reef however holds up to 12ft easily depending on winds and swell during the winter.
Can get busy when the wave is cranking, Ifafa Beach water is so warm and beautiful...but the reef is powerful and shallow.
Empty lineup and mellow vibe.Enjoy!

That Ifafa is the most dangerous area in the South Coast...

--- - If this break was more consistent it would be one of the best waves on the East Coast.
