La Puntiallia in Amber Coast is an exposed reef break that has reliable surf. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. Offshore winds blow from the south. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the north northeast. A right hand reef break. It's sometimes crowded here. Beware of urchins, rocks, sharks and coral.
