Pero is a nice little town stay at the only homestay they will cook as well 3 excellent meals a day check the other side of the river and the continuing beaches as well.
The left is very hollow but gets a bit of chop from the trade winds. Low tide too shallow, so from low to mid up. Handles some size but gets heavy, not an easy wave. Doesn't always seem to line up properly.
The right on the other side of the river is short and wonky with the odd barrel, and only handles up to head high or a bit more, before it gets too dangerous, as it breaks in front of rocks. Its also a bit fickle.
nice isolated bring some friends along cool surrounding good fresh fish extraodinary nice people
It's a little inconsistent here with trade wind chop, sweeping currents, and doesn't like low tides. Can get barrelled here, but certainly not every day. Really a long way to come for an inconsistent and difficult wave to ride and catch working properly.

not worth it - This place is more fickle and not as good as it sometimes looks in pictures. It gets side/onshore in the SE trade winds, and doesnt like any low tide and gets super currenty on high tide with any size. Not really worth the trip. There is a right on the other side of the channel but it's also fickle, both can be very frustrating and hard to catch right.
