Interesting beach, pretty enough wild. Suitable to surf. And weird thing, is that you can do sandboarding too. There are some small dunes there. It's not like doing that in Morocco but should enough to render the idea.

Locals will make difficult to catch a wave!! Be aware !! Busy area parking can be expensive!! We parked in the street and walked to the beach !! Good exercise and great beach to chill out since the water is like a ice water

If you want waves... come to joaquina... the water is a bit colder than other beaches in the island, but has great waves, and the beach is huge... space to be for yourself if you want... just need to walk more... it also has restaurants,...More
