Owner description: Surfers take note: this beach's consistent and sizeable waves make it a surfer's heaven and is best known for the strangely shaped rocks that stick out of the sand.

Been there end November. The weather was windy, but I guess it is like that year round on the East Coast. Very nice place, definitely worth checking out, even if you don't surf. Ideal for "getting-away-from-it-all", to sit back and relax or even if you need a calm place to let your creativity flourish.
There are not too many accomodations around, so if you want to stay there couple of days, be sure to check up front.

The surf is quite rough here, good for surfing. The beach is rocky in some places, but also has some wonderful tide pools for wading with the kids, even one deep enough to snorkel in like a big fish tank. I think I may have counted more than 20 types of fish in the tide pool. The rough surf and rocky beach are a great combo for beachcombing for glass. The shells are few. There are also many odd and bizarre rock formations here, almost looking like giant mushrooms rising from the sea. The beach is well marked with roadsigns, there are bathrooms available, and vendors. It seems many taxis and tourbuses stop here for a few moments, but the beach area never becomes crowded since they only stop for a few minutes with their cameras. We drove here twice over our week vacation.

1st off, we don't surf but enjoy living vicariously through those that do. We went in mid-october and there were big waves crashing on shore. 6' + swells at the break. Watched about a dozen experienced surfers take turns riding waves, sometime two at a time, just off the coast.

Maybe its calmer at other times of the year, but it certainly wasn't a place for beginners. In november there is an international competition there.

Just across the parking access, there is the Surf Bowl Cafe. Great place to watch and have a beer even if the weather is bad.
