Park your car right on the beach... although be careful with the tide. When its full you might come out of the water and find your car in two feet of water. The surf is easy to ride at low tide... but when there is a swell,(which is often), be ready to have 2-3ft overhead at high tide and it be pumping.
This spot is great when the point break(santa catalina)is ultra crowded. It is only a short distance away and there are some great hostels and hotels near by.
There is not much in the way of nightlife here. So if you do come, just be sure it is for the surf. The town is a little village, the locals are great and very inviting... Dont forget to visit the small market in the heart of the village to stock up on water, and Balboa. Have fun!!
