Really fun waves, warm water and a pretty good vibe in the lineup. Not much more you can ask for. Consistent swell, easy takeoffs and long open faces at mid and high tide, barrels at low tide. Gorgeous.

The little town had lots of quaint little shops and delicious healthy food and smoothies. The smoothie shack at Harmony Hotel was delicious too. I will be back again!

it's not blue water or perfect white sand but the tide is so far that the waves are fantastic and great to swim and surf in. sandy bottom and it's a reserve so there is nothing on the beach but people and it's never crowded.

Shoulder to head and a bit waves every day for our entire stay. Picked up a board from Juans surf shop, cheap and great selection.

You could watch the surfers and walk on the beach for a couple of miles. The sand was white and beautiful.
