Atmosphere

The beach is nearly 7 kilometers long, East exposed, with some rock points here and then. Sandbars will built close to the points and EXPECT STRONG CURRENTS after a flat period.
In case of big South swell (winter, typhoons far toward Vietnam) this beach can be used as a surf shelter.

Water Temps - Am I missing it? Do we know what the water temperature is?

Really surf in Shangchuan Dao? - Hey all, I'm a SoCal transplant living in Macau and am dying to hit the surf. Any recommendations, hints, thoughts on Shangchuan Dao? I'll be heading there regardless since it's so close, and will definitely post if I learn anything useful.
