Atmosphere

Not too many people. Hit or miss. You can tell if it's gonna be a surfable day if you see locals out. If no one is out don't even try it.

Beginners??? - The fact of having a good day there depends on the day. It's true that it's not easy to see good waves but there are some days in which you can enjoy very much...You should tyo be patient or to be a local so you can wait until the right momentGood waves!!!
