Choppy and waves. With low tide be careful with some reef in the left and right side. The biggest problem of this spot is the nasty water, sometimes it smells very bad. There is a fecal water out near the beach.

Sand but with a lot of dirt, all kind of dirt. It's a beach that they don't clean often, maybe once a year. It's very good for launching and landing. Be careful with the people around (thieves), not many but it's near Jinamar and it's a place with not very good reputation. You can go to the beach with the car.

It's good in summer when it's blowing 35+ knots in Pozo Izquierdo you could kite there with only 20-25 knots. In the beach the wind is onshore but as you go out to the sea (100m) it's sideshore. Works with Northeast winds.

Access
Short walk

From airport to the North to Las Palmas, about 3 km. Before Las Palmas you see an exit to Jinamar. As you start the exit to the right, you can see also like a bus stop in front of you and the way in of the cars that came from Jinamar to Las Palmas, you have to go to the bus stop and then cross the way in of the cars of Jinamar and take a sand road that goes to the beach that you could see easily from there.
