At the beach the sandbar enclosures a small river mouth with mangroves and the astonishing wild life which the low jungle is characterized by. The only palapa restaurant, which is also administered by the community, is placed on the sandbar and offers a varied menu of regional food.
If we turn to our right from the restaurant, the view couldn't be better; the waves breaking perfectly and rolling on and on. In fact this world class surf ended up the search for a perfect spot and the ASP World Championship Tour held an event at this beautiful place back in June 2006. During the contest few ones could admire Kelly Slater's getting barreled for a perfect ten from the judges, the impossible vertical drops of Bobby Martinez or the radical moves and aerials of Andy Irons who resulted the winner of the event that year.
At that time the place was known as "La Joya" (the jewel) and that's a suited name for it; come and cast your reflection on the inner water wall of a hollow tube and, be sure, the wave is so perfect that it's possible to hide in plain sight.
