Well if you're comming from the hotel area you drive to the lighthouse before you reach the lighthouse there's a sand road you turn in there and you'll notice the ocean looking at you ....park your car near the dunes and head into the ocean.

it starts with walking on the reef to get out ..watch out for the holes and urchins.
the paddle out is easy ...you better duckdive good because it's shallow reef remember. once you're out sit and wait for the waves. avoid slamming on the reefs on a drop in.
nice atmosphere not very crowded and that's good ...when your in the water and you look towards the shores you see a breathtaking view of the light house, rustic suroundings and even buttnaked poeple. Water is nice and blue everything is Beach Beach.
I know on this little island there ain't nothing that compares to Indo or Hawaii or any other world class spot, but what i can say is this on wednesday the 25 of september 2002 it was epic wednesday. I have never been to Hawaii or Indo but to me that's where i was the swells were comming in 6-8 ft very very hollow very very glassy and very regular. You could compare Spot with Pipeline ...no joke. I love Spot.
