Park in the TOLOVANA BEACH PARKING LOT (it’s free & safe). This is a great beginners spot. You don’t have to be in the group to catch waves as this is a beach break and the waves all depend on the ever changing sandbars beneath the surface. When the surf is bad up north at the cove and the point this place works pretty good. Not epic by any mark of the word but a fun place when all else fails. =P
This spot is mostly just families and kids on the big flat beach. I rarely see surfers out at this spot. Because simply put the wave is not that good. But when your usual spot is flat as a board this may be a good alternative.

NOT A BEGINNER SPOT - Whoever said this is a beginners spot is putting people in Danger. This place is one giant rip tide to Japan. Current, current, and more current. This website is a joke. This place will beat you down.
