Coming from Isla Verde (the hotel strip near the airport),head east on road 187 past the public beach of Carolina. DONT SPEED--cops love this stretch of road to catch speeders!!! Your gonna go about 2.5 miles and your going to come to a bridge. Cross it turn off immediately to your left and find a parking. If you walk up onto the bridge (good vantage point), looking out to sea you will see a very large rock about a mile out, to the left of this rock you will see the wave breaking. You will also see a buoy far out to see this is where you will be heading to get around to the backside of the break. Enjoy. Approximately 10 mins by boat, 45 mins by paddling.

 Additional Information

Best during winter season when the big NW swells come down with the cold fronts coming off the United States or when hurricanes/ powerful tropical storms are just passing north of the island in the summer. Use caution the reef is dangerous. There are strong currents, you can paddle to the break, but it is highly reccomended you go by boat--if just for the fact after your done with your surf session, you are going to be tired and still have to swim back to shore about a mile against the current if the tide is heading out. Water depth at the break is about 5 thru 20 ft deep. The wave has a huge bowl which if it is a big swell will put the fear of god in you. Try not to get caught too far inside, there is an area where the waves refract, causing 3 waves to hit against each other constantly creating huge 6 to 8 ft backwash type chop. This area is appropiately named "popcorns", once your in it, it will take you a while to get out, leaving you exhausted.
