This spot works with almost any swell. You have room to to park your car. It's not too crowded unless it gets really good on a week-end, but most of the time you don't have more than 10 people in the water. It can hold 20 on good days.
On high tide with a small swell you can find no waves. The best tides are low and rising tides but if it is a big swell all tides will do.
I like this spot and it's near from my house.

Good little break - Went to Coitos Sunday March 12, small day 4 to 5 feet, two peaks were presetn one seemed to be from rocks below the surface. Nice left and rights easy to paddle back out.
