 Additional Information

Atmosphere

If you ever get to this spot, and I bet few people do because it takes some effort, you will have a great surf. Take plenty of fresh water to drink, suncream and maybe a tent. Don't camp too close to the estuary behind the dunes. Camen live there!

What could be better than surfing a totally desolate beach with nobody around for miles. Just you, a bunch of your buddies and some perfect Mexican waves?
