“Fun beach but be careful”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

This is an amazing beach for boogie boarding and body surfing but be careful. The waves can get really strong and you should bring your fins

It was raining most of the time, but the colors in the water were
beautiful, and we loved the views.

“very cool”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

This is a challenging beach for young swimmers. But my boys are advanced swimmers and enjoyed the challenge of the huge waves and body boarding... they followed the lead of the locals.
The parking is good amazing views
