Consistent beachbreak with several peaks, works on small to medium swells. Poor beach facilities. Plenty of parking space, although can be difficult in summer.
Can produce excelent waves, depending on sandbar formaations, which change every season.
Avoid coming June an July due to fishing season. Surf will be prohibited during theese months!
