It's a great surf spot with several surf shops, board rentals, lessons and some great food and drinks. All levels of surfers can have fun here and is okay in any tide. There are clean restrooms, outdoor showers for after surfing and lots of parking

A beautiful and Nice Beach for surfing. It is not the most easy Place to find, so it will be more efficient to talk to some locally known People or a tourist Office for guidance.

Excellent beach for surfing fans. The beach is not deep, so it facilitates learning in the domain of waves.
