Next to Viceroy hotel. You can usually rent surfboards or bodyboards at the hotel, but to be safe I would bring your own. The backwash from the mini sand mound on the beach gets really annoying because it prevents the waves from breaking. I would assume the backwash didn't exist before the stupid hotel got their. The reef is shallow and semi dangerous if you go all the way to the east, but if you hang just right of the reef, you can still get some fun waves. It seems like this is the only decent spot on the island, and unless you wanna paddle out near Shoal Bay East and go for the outer reefs, which are 10 feet+ and completely unknown. Ill keep you updated if I find more spots.
A lot of hotel people on the beach. But no surfers or swimmers by the reef.
Good spot when it gets going

how dolphins really is.. - Just had a decent session today. The waves were steep and barreling with a backwash. Fun for bodyboarding, but surfing it can get a little tricky. There must be a north swell with a decent size and offshore winds for it to break well. The people who work at the hotel will warn you first about the "dangerous reef" , but ignore them. Really fun and beautiful spot for the most part.

if you don't live here.... - you should not make statements about how often it breaks>last fall, winter and spring had at least 15 good days.
