Mimi's Reef is a jagged lava reef that juts out from a black cobblestone beach. You'll see it whitecapping on small days, but it really gets going during big winter storms or Typhoon swell when size gets DOH and above. The beach is surfable at most any size, but nothing special.
To access the break, walk along the guard rail until you find the wooden ladder the fishermen use. If that's gone, look for a spot to climb down the seawall, but make sure you can get back up first! The shorey can be rough, and the whole spot tends to be really drifty, so experienced surfers only on days with any size.
This is a remote spot along some rugged mountain coastline. If other spots are closing out, Mimi's is worth a check as the reef can provide some shelter and a rip current to make the paddleout managable. You're a long way from help, so bring friends.
Mimi's is a beautiful place to surf if you catch it on. The water is clean, the sky is blue, and the mountains are green. Nobody's going to come bother your peaceful session.
