It is mostly a surfer’s beach, but also a spot for other wind and water sports. Suitable for all levels of experience, but when the wind is up, it is not a place for beginners. Here swell starts building at 1 m/3 ft and can reach up to more than 3 m/9 ft with best swell directions coming from South, East and Southeast.
