there are people who surf here, but be warned, there are tons of rocks just under the surface that will beat you up good. Better to go over to Stinkys

We are a group of friends that enjoy sup surfing and we love this beach and restaurants. It’s low key and a home away from home. The locals are lovely and it’s usually way quieter than our town of Sayulita. Shhh. It’s a secret!

This beach is a bit rocky, small, and plain. The water was murky the day we visited. The place is pretty scarce and not worth driving to see if that is the focus. It is a decent stop off point to check out the area...More
