Find the infamous Spanish Left and take the costal path left until you get to the Metropolis bar on the sea front. It's in front of there.

- Man-made danger (buoys etc..)
Watch out for the semi-submerged rock just right (when looking at it from the beach) of the peak. Very fast, very sucky, especially when you reach the shallower areas. 3-5 second barrels not rare. Get off the wave before you collide with the jetty thing.
Keep your eyes open when duck diving, it's clear blue & you can watch out for rocks. Can be very crowded even if it's not that great, nothing to worry about though if you don't drop in. Cool atmosphere when it's on with all the people watching from the path and all the bars.
This place is awesome on it's day. Can be very powerful & dangerous if you get caught inside on a big day. Watch the locals for a bit before going in.

- good spot, if La Izquierda is packed full of people, its not a bad compromise...have had more problems with non-surfing locals watching than those in the sea! I love all of these spots accross Playa De Las Am...!

Watch out for shopping trolleys - I was surfing here one day and an old lady lost control of her shooping trolley.She whipped it around in circles and it spun out into the lineup missing me by inches, inches i tells yas.Im lucky to be telling the story.
