You can park your car at the side of the road. The wave breaks at the end of the beach over rocks, plus there's a point break on the left side of the bay. If it's windy forget it, there'll be too many windsurfers speeding around. While the beach is sandy and soft, the ground in the water ´mostly rock, looking like sand-bottom (yes!).
I recommend booties, as I made contact with sea-urchins -> Ouch!
Can be nice there, definetely worth a try.
English people call this spot Glass beach, maybe because of the crystal clear water.
I found the spot quite nice, as the waves were strong and uncrowded. The current is quite strong, so I got tired very early. Getting out through the rocks can be painfull (urchins) better paddle against the current and leave via sandy beach. btw. nice chicks.

tides - surfed this place three times last week works on all tides but best at lower as its hollower if north track is on shore head straight here its good lefts and rights but expect the odd drop in off the more ignorant locals.

Spot U - Surfed El Burro in Feb 98. Scored it perfect. Didn't know what it was called then so we named it Spot U as it was totally horeshoeing into a perfect A-frame, with left and right barrells. Going back in 4 weeks hoping to score it again.
