The wave is just North of Anse Bertrand. If it is on you can see it peeling down the point from the town itself.

Head out of Anse Bertrand on the Morne a l'eau road, and take a left just after town. Continue on this stretch, then avoid having an accident when you round the corner and see the raw beauty of this wave.
I would seriously think twice before paddling out at this spot. The wave is powerful over very shallow, sharp coral. Take off is critical and close to equally critical rocks.
Even in crowded Gwada, you'll never find more than a handful of takers here. Like everyone else in Gwada that I met they are chilled, friendly and love to surf. Heaven!
