Mind the nature reserve area. Flat to choppy water. Lots of shallow water. Tidal. Attention: The current can be very dangerous, especially when the water flow out of the lagoon (from high to low tide). It is the most dangerous with winds from the East. When you're in trouble, the current and the wind will push you out to the sea. So, absolutely nothing for beginners and never ride alone!
