It's not the reefs. Only the beach breaks. Some years a sandback can result in a left-hander near the black rock opposite the Lifeguard hut, but generally it's fairly poor. Definitely good for beginners.
Spanish Point Beach can only be rated as an average break at best. Some years it can work fairly well when the winter storms leave down a sand bank or two - but most years it just closes out. Nevertheless it's definitely a nice place to go if you're a beginner, or on a longboard.
My family are from this area, and I learned to surf here, so I quite like the place.
