Canoa is an off the beaten path beach on the North Side where you can surf, it is not a touristy white sand beach paradise spot but a loved, wild wave crashing inlet and surrounded by fishermen. Sometimes the local surf cronies have bonfires. A new beach hut was recently constructed by the surfers, let's hope this one won't be... More
