It is advised only to surf it with a low or medium tide because when the tide is too high, the waves will crash with the cliff creating more waves that will make surf very difficult. Be careful when entering the water.
Use booties and bring a camera because from the mirador you can take awesome pictures.
It`s a great beach but only if you are experienced.
