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
