From Town follow the main highway and signs to "Seroe Colorado". Make a right at the junction where the anchor is and where you will first see the ocean. Keep going straight until you see a church and enter a settlement of old refinery houses. The oil refinery will tell you if you're close. Go straight and go down the hill. Make a left at the T-junction and follow the road down with the right bend. From here you'll see the giant Bay and the spot. Keep going straight until you hit the old dilapitated Esso Club. You will see some fisherman piers and boats to your right. Head towards the docks and park. This will be your entry point for the spot.

No crime on Aruba, so don't worry about that. Paddle around the docks and head towards the reef. This spot is recommended for people that have surfed reefs before and definitely take a local to guide you through the reef pass. The reef pass is located to the left of the bay. The take off spot is a little bit to your right and will take some paddling to get to. When you surf this spot it feels like you're in the middle of the ocean. It's a really fast wave and the don't forget that the reef is very very sharp. Again, find a local that has surfed it before. Not many people surf here, but when it's on people will travel to surf it. Look for Mr. Jack Marshall. A good bloke who lives in the area.
The atmosphere is awesome because if it's on, it's on and the wave is blast. It's in tropicla blue Caribbean water and it is awesome. Kind of sketchy, but worth it. Be hardcore!
Sick, but dangerous.
