Good swell comes from the Southeast and East and it starts working at less than 1 m/3 ft and can reach up to more than 2.5 m/8 ft. Optimal tide position is low and mid tide and best wind direction comes from the North, South, Southeast and Northeast. This is a great spot once the conditions are ideal with big waves during winter.
In summer, it is not a very crowded place and surfing is not allowed during business hours, but no restrictions off season. You should mind the rocks at the bottom.
