There is a small carpark on the cliff. Access to the cove from here is a small cliff path that decends to the beach. At high tide the water is level with the rock and pebble line of the beach and there will be poor surf. However at low and mid tide the beach is revealed with enough of a tide range to reveal a relatively large area of sand. Rocks line either side of the cove so stick to the middle. depending on the state of the stand there is usually a nice right to be found at low tide wich changes to more of a left at mid tide. There is very little rip wich in my experience seems rare for such a small cove.
The wave itself can form a perfect tube a lot of the time. It is quite fast and very powerful. It is a good idea to take of as early as possible as the face is very steep. A late take-off is a fine way to get dumped. when the wave reaches 7+ feet it can have a tendancy to dump and surfing it is more about dropping in and then getting the hell out of there! However in the mid ranges (2-6 foot) the wave can be very agreeable and fun to ride
A safe fun, fast wave wich can provide some nice tube time
