Pretty easy access, be careful with the sharp, full of mussles (mejillones), rocks... Be careful as well how you get out... Watch the locals, and be careful because you may lose a fin or two...

There is a public parking lot. Park in front of the wave, there is no beach there... just the wave...
It's easy to find because there is a statue of a VIRGIN very close to the spot...
Great world class left wave, has a "pipelinesque" drop, sucks up on top of the rocks, good moment to barrel if you stay on the far left of the peak, could get to a very descent size 8-10 feet. Pretty long ride.
Dangerous, be careful not to hit the bottom, sharp mejillones with cut you open like a knife.
One of the best lefts in the country, definitly. If it's not the best left in Punta del Este maybe the second... together with "LA BOYA".
