Not the best around but can get pretty classic under the right conditions. Summer days are best here on a smaller, clean swell 3-5foot. Sometimes good in spring and august but usually too big and messy in winter. I come either here or Bettys Bay when all the other places are not on. Lefts and rights, a few different peaks depending on the day. On some days there is a mean shorebreak on the righthand side. Best in early morning or on no or little offshore wind.
I dont think the beach itself is private but the holiday resort is so you need to just tell the security youre surfing or visiting someone. Beautiful surroundings, i garauntee you there'll be noone else in the water so enjoy!
Currents are a problem here so check it out carefully before going in, there is a nasty rip most days but not so bad the smaller it gets. Loads of sharks have also been spotted here and in Hawston further down the beach so watch out for them.
