An abundance of breaks to choose from up and down the coast, from beach breaks, reef breaks to river mouths. With several large towns all up and down the coast a wide range of amenities, parking is available. Classic breaks such as Pease Bay and beautiful isolated bays like Lunan both of which hold fantastic surf but of a different variety. Nigg Bay offers more than likely the best surf in the region with fast Hollow rights and lefts. It's also on eof the more popular places along the coast so you may have to fight for a parking space on a busy day.
