This is a very good beach to learn how to surf on, and there is a surf school right on the sand that provides lessons, wetsuits, and board rentals in the summer. For more advanced surfers, there is a long left-hand wave that starts on a rocky bottom that then turns to sand. Waves can grow up to seven feet (two meters) tall, but the current can become intolerable as the waves get larger. If you can keep up with the strong current, you’ll be rewarded with very long, nicely shaped waves.
In optimal conditions, the wind would have to blow from the west, west-northwest, and north-east. The swell would go east and east-southeast. To ride the longer waves, you have to position yourself almost on the rocks, which makes for a difficult drop. This is also a popular beach, so look out for other people swimming and for other surfers, especially those who are just learning.
