Atmosphere

Great view! As you look at the surf you'll see a small lagoon on your left. This lagoon feeds out to the ocean via a small creek. There is a great point-like left on the south end of the beach off a small rocky shelf. Nudists frequent this beach.

General

Good spot. Not always a winner, but always worth the check. Sometimes is firing and nobody out due to walk and lack of ability to see from the hwy.

SHARKS!!!! - Eric Gieselman was attacked here during a free-surf while the 'QS was in town for the Coldwater Classis. November 5, 2009 I think. Luckily he was not injured, but the shark hit him from below and broke his board in half!

So not "always worth a check" - Lagunas breaks good about ten times a year. And when it actually breaks, the surrounding better-known breaks are all-time. Short beachbreak (not a point).
