Most of the surf comes fis in the form of windswells and the best wave direction is from the east northeast. Waves at the beach are both lefts and rights and there are also left and right hand reef breaks on offer. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Sometimes crowded. Beware of urchins and obstacles.
