Beach break between rocks in main part of bay, good wave for all level surfers. Better right hander at east end of bay, fast and hollow, not for beginners.
Great wave, and in the summer enought light to keep surfing all through the night. Campsite in the village right over the beach with friendly pub makes it perfect for a surf trip. Crowds haven't been invented here yet.
