We went on this beach to just look at the surfers . There are big waves and personal I would be afraid to get into the water . There were many people there though trying to surf, including big kids. There is a small forest right behind , you can also take the path through it to get to the road. There is a safeguard there, as well, within specific hours. Beautiful beach to relax and watch courageous people adventure, as well as dog friendly.
