My husband and I were here one morning for beginners surfing lessons. The beach was beautiful ... Not at all busy (note we visited during off peak season) and PERFECT waves in the morning for first time surfers.

Visited after a tour. Clean water with awesome surf to bodyboard. Wish we had more time to relax and enjoy.
