If you're a beginner, improver, intermediate or a freestyle legend, you will adore this spot. But please don't mob the place as I'd rather keep it as chilled as it currently is. Not good for wading in the shallows if you're not aware of high...More

Great place to learn to wind surf in waist deep clear water. Nice beach bar and fun place to spend the day or afternoon if you need a break from diving for the day.
