Atmosphere

Its usualy empty and its biger then everywhere else its clean and virgin the houses in this area are all in still in construction so it might not look so good .But what counts here are the beach and the waves.The sand is thick and white like hawaii .Some fishermans and 4x4 cars drive a long the beach some times so wach out for them ,make your self notice at the beach so they don t run over your boards or your self .
The best days to go there are after the souht storms when the sun shows up again and the wind directions are turning then you will have about one week of great surf and good water temperature
after that the water starts getting cold and dark and the swell drops to much .
