 Additional Information

nice very long right waves, glassy, got a mountain on the side that covers it from the wind that screw all the other waves in playas and engabao, not crowded because nobody lives nearby.
sometimes they steal the stereos from the cars, so try not to leave the car parked there cause you can't see it from the beach, get a lift to the place if possible, totally worth it!!!!
