Jose L Souto from Venezuela
“Buenas playa, de fácil acceso. olas consistentes casi todo el año, aunque no de gran tamaño. exceptuando temporadas de swells o huracanes.
suele haber mas gente los fines de semanas.
si tienes suerte puedes observar tortugas marinas nadando en la playa.
se pueden correr olas de izquierda y derecha.”
