Dangers

- Rips / undertow
- Rocks
- Localism

 Additional Information

Be careful : localism. Also with a rising tide the exit onto rocks can be a bit 'hot'. With a high tide and 2+m swell it can be hard to get out-back due to strong currents caused around the rocks.

Atmosphere

Don't come by the bus-load, you'll not be welcom. Come as one or two and be respectful of the locals and there shouldn't be any problems.
That is, unless there are already more than 20 in the water...
