It is the same beach as the Fae (it's a long Beach) but Fae is military territory; to get here you only ask for "Punta Carnero", all the people know it. It's in Salinas' region, there is a long beach with many big breaking waves...

Park your car in the street, not in the beach. It's better to go in the morning (glass), mid tide, with a normal swell...
It is one of my favourite spots, because I learned how to surf there. It's powerful but fun at the same time, that’s what I like about it.
It can be dangerous for begginners when the tide is high. Great 2m or so waves.
It's very good and powerful sometimes...
