 Additional Information

Best in the rainy season (May-Sept). There are a few young kids that surf it but that's about it. The people in town are extremely cool. There are a bunch of good seafood restaurants right on the beach.

Parking is easy and safe.

The waves are best in the mid-late afternoon but the spot can change every few minutes with the winds, with lefts AND rights.
