Very quiet spot, quite protected especially from western winds. Not a great wave, but worth a paddle when Islares or Orinon are crowded. Fills up with the Bilbao surf crowd over weekends.

- Good place to park your RV for a few days. Waves are short but hollow under off-shore wind conditions. A total mess with off-shore, though. Lots of annoying local bodyboarders.
