The bay hardly receives any NE swell from the cyclone season due to the Cavalli Islands, a group of islands just offshore the bay. When there's waves here problably it's bigger somewhere around, still, a good wave offering some good workable walls ans sections.
All locals seemmed to be very friendly, never had troubles at all.
If it's flat go for a snorkeling around the rocks or scuba diving at the Greenpeace Raibow Warrior Vessel site (about few kms offshore), ask at the local campground shop for more info.
