Usually best spot to the north end of the beach, near to the rocks. But sand bars move around, and it can be worth taking a walk down the beach. Watch out for the seals!
Catches most of the swell going, mellow atmosphere in the water (providing you show respect to others), and usually very quiet.

danny - More northerly aspect than surrounding breaks, picks up more swell, but exposed. Is good on clean groundswell and holds size...but no defined channells so nitemare paddle out.
