This is the favourite beach for surfers from around the globe. The waves are spectacular. Nice places to eat all along the beach. Would not recommend swimming but great way to spend the day

Not much more to say. Just gorgeous. Not a beach for swimming since it has big surf. But great for walking, surfing, or just worshipping the sun.
