A big beach break with plenty of space to surf wthout crowds. Most surfers hang around the rocky outcrop in the centre of the beach in front of the car park. The waves here are more consistant
with right handers peling away from the rock. But good waves to be had either side with sand bars all along the beach. Exposed beach so will pick up most swell that is going.
A good venue - cafes along the beach for those with the munchies and a few restaurants bars etc.
Small village, no real hassle even in mid-summer.
A good place to sample the surf scene of Galicia.
