 Additional Information

There's a big Parking lot for the car, which has been crerated thanx to the E.U. Before it was a wonderful wild beach which made it even more special so thanx E.U.
From time to time you have to watch outy for locals as they are quite pissed from the new parking lot and don't really enjoy seeing strangers around. In summer it is packed cause it's a quite small beach and when the tide is high and there are waves the beach is almost inexistant

Atmosphere

It's the ideal spot when it's not too big to do an evening session. Nobody around and a wonderful view.
Whoever ruins the atmosphere can get problems from the other surfers specialy from locals.

General

This spot is great when no one's around. If there are more than 6 surfers in the water it starts becoming complicated and you better know your preferences....
