Huge waves but no real rip tide, felt safe for a first time surfer! More people in the water than in the large beach.

Nice little beach, not to much to do on the beach and it is a bit dirty but if you surf there were some good waves.

This is a great place to watch the surfers on big waves and stay for the icing on the cake of the sunsets! There are also a few great restaurants right off the beach for dinner.

Huge beach stretching for miles with something for everyone, surfing lessons, beach bars, horse riding or walking. Dark sand and sea is warm but not clear due to sand stirred up by breaking surf. Fabulous sunsets

Beautiful beach with lots of sand and water sports to do. Great for relaxing and can get drinks twenty steps away.

If you use common traveler's sense, I'd say no. For instance, if you're at the beach, don't leave your items unattended. Keep your valuables in the lock box in your hotel room. If a local is randomly trying to engage you in... More
