It’s worth a visit, but not for swimming. Nice to see surfers in action, extremly windy. We came here to see the waves, and were not disappointed.

This beach is very beautiful and not very crowded. Huge waves are ideal for surfing. Only negative I would say are the very strong winds. For the ladies I would recommend tied hair or head scarf.
