|Find the best surf spots||
The majority of the spots are reef break, and are pretty shallow and treacherous. Most of the spots provide long, hollow rides on a good day. There are many secret spots, and you may not be able to access some without getting onto private property, or renting a boat. Awesome. Chances are there are some waves breaking somewhere...
