We visit this beach just to relax and be a while on the beach, during August, and it was an excellent experience. This beach was so nice, with calm and warm water. The place to be with children, they love it.

Wish I had rented a board while we were here. The surf looked a lot of fun and there is plenty of beach for non-surfing family members to relax and have fun too.

This place is SOOOO great to watch professional surfers year round! It gets super packed, though, when the surf competitions come up. Almost every square inch of sand will be taken up.

The easiest way is to Uber. We have used them several times to go back and forth to the airport. The cheapest way is to take the local bus.
