 Additional Information

Most people pass this stretch of beach and go to Koeelbay or Betty's and not even know its there. It doesnt always get as good as the others, much more exposed beachbreak but does get good, depending on conditions. On good days its a good hollow ride, usually shortish but powerful and never anyone else out.

Atmosphere

Come check it out. Its quite a walk but good. Best place is the smallest of the two beaches, passed the rocks on the right side towards rooi-els. Really gotta watch out for currents and sharks though, very exposed.
