“Fantastic beach break, wide open, with several breaks to choose from. Fast hollow waves, sandy bottom, fun to ride. Onshore winds by 10:30 AM. Lots of mosquitoes and black flies. It is best to bring a bug shelter, especially for those that will stay at the shore. No food and beverage available nearby either, you must come prepared.”
