Relatively short ride, but its consistency makes up for the short ride. One the most consistent reef breaks on Mahe Island. Police Bay is just south.
Ridable about 50 days per year, only really gets good a few days per year. (I don't know who put the surf spot description but it is inaccurate)
Great surf spot with lovely warm water

JO-C - Spent 2 weeks in the old hotel 'Hotel le bourgainville' directly opposite last year with my girlfriend, might of been the luckiest hotel booking ever made. a good 200 yard paddle out to the reef; wave is super powerful a right hand race track. Not sure why it says left on the description; you'd have to be mad. Similar to HT's in the Mentawaii islands.
