We hit this spot because the tourists go to the others, and don't know about this place. Easy to get to but parking is limited. And its a goods walk down a path to the beach, b ut worth it.

This is a great spot for hanging out and surfing. The views are great but you want to be ready for a challenging climb down to the beach and back. The surf is nice, with numerous breaks and a nice roll.
