great beach - I used to live right on that beach. If you look on the picture (the only one, #1) the farthest break at the top right is what you're looking for. Its a left to right if you're looking from the beach, a right to left if you are riding it. The waves are created from the huge coral reef which protects the nearby harbor. The spot is a good 80 meters to paddle out to, and you need to pass strong current zone. Sharks are a problem here, with a nice long history of encounters. The spot is great but can be dangerous if you do not know what you are doing. There are also two beach-breaks on the beach. One is with really small waves, good for beginners and another one if practically un-surfable, with breaks of 6+ meters really close to shore, the wave breaks practically on the beach. All in all if you feel like taking the risks with the reef and sharks, you will have a good session here.
