If you dont want to pay to park the car park it up on the hill near the restaurant and the red house and then walk down the stairs to the beach. You should paddle out near the rocks on the right side of the beach and then paddle more to the middle.
People are nice. All shortboarders and spongers.
It is a fun spot.

- Las Cruces is more a beach break than a sand-bar. It is a really good place if you want to surf by yourself (any season except for summer)
