Karang Haji is in a small cove just east of the Ocean Queen Resort. The resort is about 2km west of the town of Cisolok. The sign for the resort is very obvious, car parking available there. Walk down the steep road, look for the trail on the left just before you reach the gate for the resort. You can also hire a motorbike (ojek) from Cisolok or Cimaja.

This spot requires a respectable swell to work. If the waves are not very big they might not break with high tide. Watch out for a rock that is sticking out right in the surf (with low tide). The locals are friendly and helpful. Just ask some locals if you need something: coconut, mineral water, grilled fish, fried noodle are served with beach stlye.
This is one of the better spots in the area for beginners to learn. There are rocks, but the waves aren't nearly as powerful as places like Cimaja Point, and the wave doesn't close out like Sunset until things get very big. There is also no problem with wind here, as it is sheltered, so Cimaja may be blown out but Karang Haji will be glassy. However, this is not a world class wave, it doesn't usually barrel, it often lacks power, and the sections don't always link up cleanly. But it is still a very fun wave.
Also consider staying at Ocean Queen. It's reasonably priced, has very pleasant accommodations, and you'll literally sleep 50 meters from the surf.
