Tends to receive distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west southwest. There is a right hand reef break. A popular wave that can get growded. Beware of sharks, rips and rocks.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
