This spot is at the southeast end of the island. From town follow signs with "Seroe Colorado". When you come upon the ocean make a left at the junction (you'll see the remnants of an old anchor at the split). Then follow the road going west along the shore line and look for a bunch of abandonded wooden huts and houses (it's where the Arubans like to spend time on the weekends). The spot is right in front of these houses. Park close to the beach. Make sure you have a 4x4 because there are several dunes and sand roads you will be driving on. The spot is in front of the second house from the left when facing the ocean. There is a big bamboo pole there.

 Additional Information

This place is an excellent spot when there is a sizeable swell. It's a full-on reef break and there will be some reef walking required. The spot itself is easy to find, but where to paddle out is a whole different thing. Problem is that the little reef path to paddle out to is hard to find. Since the reef is located about 100 yards out, it's hard to see it. The best thing to do is paddle directly out from the bamboo pole and line yourself up with it and the green house. Once you get to the reef, you have to either walk over it or time it right to go with the outgoing rip current. It's about a foot to two feet deep. And yes, there is fire coral everywhere. Cuts and scrapes will most likely occur. Wear booties if you got em. Once you're finally out, it's a long wave and super ripable too. Kinda like a small version of sunset. Even with the wind onshore, which is the case 99 percent of the time, the waves are classic. It's worth the hassle to get out there. Best advice is to go with a local because the spot can be dangerous if you go out at the wrong point. There are sharks here too.

Atmosphere

The spot is sick. Take out a local for advice! Notify people of where you are because it's far away from everything.

free lodging! - there's lot's of huts at the beach too. so camping is no problem, just move into the nicest looking hut and hope the owners don't show up any time soon. they probably won't
