Turn left before the entrance to the channel port go through the railway tunnel and then straight on for couple hundred meters, its right in front of you couple of hundred yards out in the bay. Alternatively park on cliff top near Martello tower and walk down cliff path.

The reef at east cliff has rarely been surfed, this is because it is some way of shore and close to the harbour entrance, requires a large swell to work well, can work on smaller swells if low spring tide.
Narley only for the very experienced.

the vibes - hi guys. I'm moving to up to the south east soon. I'm leaving my beloved south west paradise and was wondering what the vibe is like. This looks like a pretty sweet wave. Locals cool and all that. Hoping to leave the screw face and stink eye back in newquay!
