 Access

This is one of the wildest beaches on the island due to its difficult access - by boat from Orzola or by coming down the cliffs at Famara.

location - Hi, I'm trying to find out where all surfspots are at lanzarote with google earth/maps, but I can't really figure out this spot. I think it is over here (http://maps.google.nl/maps?f=q&hl=nl&geocode=&q=Tenerife,+Spain&ie=UTF8&ll=29.195665,-13.507433&spn=0.029633,0.067635&t=h&z=15), but is this correct? And exactly which part of the coastline that I pointed out, as that part of the coast visible in the link I posted is approx. 3 km long.
