Waves are perfect (almost every day) for...

“I slept in a dorm and it was small, but i met very nice persons there. So you have to decide for yourself, if you insist on your privacy. There is no fitness center, but the surfing opportunities are excellent. And you for sure don´t need a swimming pool, because there is the ocean just close to this place!”
