The waves break close to the shore over a sandy bottom.

Tubes to the left and the right are common. The sand banks create the best waves during mid upcoming tide. Backyards needs swell from the Northwest or Southwest.

Coming from the North leave the paved road immediately after the village Playa Hermosa. There is space for some cars to park. Don’t leave anything in the car here!
