Park at palmar beach and walk east for about 10 min. or park at San Carlos by the houses behind the river.
No crowd, very few locals.
Fast, hollow, fun wave, long ride.

Directions - Yeah, that would be a left of the Pan-Am highway. That is, unless you plan on going to the Caribbean. hehe jkThe spot goes off when it's negative tide and super big (i.e maxed out) everywhere else.

DIRECTIONS TO BEACH - I just submitted a correction to the beach and saw that someone entered the same correction back in 2001. Do you think you should correct your directions by now? Thanks, Nancy

DIRECTIONS TO BEACH - Hi...just wanted to make sure about your direction to turn 'right' at San Carlos when coming from Panama City. I thought a 'left' was going towards the beach. Thanks. Nancy
