A fickle right hand reef off of a peak. A ledgy barrell over rocks. Low tide can be high on the sketch factor, mid tide best. Needs a smaller swell, big lined up swells tend to close it out. While not world class an excellent and powerful right hand tube when on, a rarity in Peru. Also some mediocre beach break to the south of the right.
Great food in Barranca. Go to the Don Tito right next to the break and try a plate of Tacu Tacu with seafood. Not to be missed!!
