Week-end crowdFew surfers
In this beach you have two waves. One is a left in the middle of the beach that in good days can be very fast and hollow. The other is a right on the right side of the beach in the rivermouth. This right, in good days, is a triangular pic, but only works whem the bottom is good.
Go to this beach only when the sea is big.
Closes out/flat on high tide, good on low tide and incoming/going high tide.

- Good on low tide and incoming/going high tide, closes out/flat on high tide.
The right at the far right side of the beach is protected and a good place to surf when other places are too big.
