Atmosphere

It's the perfect spot to have fun invite a friend there are also little paths beyond the bushes which are very interesting. I do not suggest using a lycra if you hate sand. Try not to wear a trunk with pockets without drain or they will fill with sand.

General

It's the perfect beach for body boarders it is perfect for doing rollos and airs. Its a hard to grab wave when in a surf board,The locals are the only ones faliliar with the wave,ripping them apart,Its a fast wave in the short brake, when its big a wave apears in the back than conects with theleft on the short brake, making it a long wave. It's a great spot when it's big because there an outside appears. When it gets consistent and good there is a lot of algae in the water.

PR surfer - I SURFED IT FIRST in 1992. The locals from ther will remmeber me, I had the bicycle lycra short tights and an Al Merrick Tom Curren model mid 1980's board , but ripping because I have natural talent. The locals were ripping on "new school potato chips" and although they where puerto rican like me they looked so gringo, white, blonde, blue eyes and they had this protective vibe. As the tide changes it has a left but the real spot is west of that with a reef that pops up the line as it starts to jack up, and it focuses it on the inside as a hollow tubable right hand wave, with a sort of back door left(opposite of pipeline) but on a much smaller scale. I got stink eye. And your car is 99% going to get broken into if you leave crap on the seat. We left some casset tapes on the seat and that was enough, glass broken. Most beautiful beach I have ever seen. Trippy and dreamy. Cactus forest(no kidding) desert environment, dry and yellow(not brown like guanacaste Costa Rica) with cactus and then the beach was full of cocnut palms in a cove with the most brightest florescent blue-green water and the locals dominating the transition of this reef to sandbar takeoff that tubed dry on sand, but no turbulence, not one drop out of place, tubes on sand hollow fast but with no, I mean no, sections until get spit out and and fast semi close out left but doggy door makable. I say and alays will say,"There are more secret spots in PR then known." if you have that intimacy gift with the PR ocean which I have had since I was 9 days old that I was taken to pinones every week. Explore and find perfect spots to your self if you are a grom at hear, so many spots. Guanica has the dreamiest blue green deep but florescent bright( take your breath away) cystaline clear water like a dream. Im soory costa rica but your beaches are butt ugle compared to ours. I know this much English because I studies in the main land but PRcan through and through. No place like carribean. How come no one talks about Viegues spots. Awesome shallow point breaks that rival Mentawias in Vieques. My Island!
