This is a fairly typical Indo reef break. Nice and consistent with powerful long rides when the swell picks up. Sensitive to winds. It's better during the raining season with NE winds.
Two main peaks:
The right: good peaky right on the west side. Can be powerful.
The left: at the east side of the bay. Rarely works.
This spot picks up heaps of swell and is one of the most beautiful places I have surfed. I've been there twice and had great waves both times. I've never seen a crowd here but maybe it gets busy at the peak of the surf charter season (roundabout May to August).

broken swell - there appears to be a reef out the back of the left which breaks up the swell distorting it.From where i was it looked like u needed a boat...the right was more accessible but it was breaking in different places.
