Playa Grande in Amber Coast is an exposed reef break that has pretty consitent surf. Winter and spring are the optimum times of year to visit. Offshore winds blow from the southeast. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the ideal swell direction is from the north. A reef breaks right. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Beware of crowds and rocks.
