We came in by boat, but there is a land camp there. I heard from the guys in the water that they took 4 hours to get there.

Do not forget to bring EVERYTHING with you. No shops here. That includes your beer! Though there is a refrigerator! I do not have any details about the land camp.

 Additional Information

Fantastic left barrels. After the 2005 earthquake the reef was lifted about a metre, you can see the old rock jutting out of the water. We had a couple of casualties here, watch out that you do not get caught inside.

Wear booties if you are not sure! I wish I had after I kicked the reef getting on my board.

Atmosphere

This is a picturesque bay. Totally unspoilt. 4 guys are staying in the day camp and with the 6 of us it meant max 10 in the water. No other boats came in while we were there, though I am sure they do. May get crowded!
Everyone was so amicable and friendly. There was no one wave hog people let some of the not so brilliant surfers, namely me, get a wave. Had 3 amazing sessions here.
