Beautiful spot, great waves for surfing! Don't let them rip you off on the lounge rental. Great beach for walking & shell collecting.

Beautiful beach! Very busy on weekends with locals and tourists. Great food and drinks served on the beach. Huge waves so difficult for swimming, but great for beginner surfers.
