“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

What a beach! Lovely sand, great surf and good choice of waves to be had. Not very safe for children but we kept them on the shore break or in the rock pools. Even though the nearby road seems very busy the beach was not crowded at all although the waves can be too busy depending on what time or what tide you surf. NEVER leave anything on the beach or in your car.

“GREAT Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Off the beaten path, but worth the trip. If you are a whiner, don't come to this town, no one will like you and no one will care. This place is for the hard core beach and nature lover, anyone else will not like it so stay home.

Beautiful beach, can be a bit crowded at times. Great surf (no rocks here). Easily accessible. 360 Surf Shop adjacent to beach, located on pathway next to Hastel Brunela.

“Awesome surfing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Amazing surf breaks for experienced surfers. Stunning sunsets. Not the best beach in the area for swimming with kids.
