There's lot's of place where to park your car. Beware of big currents and stormy swells. In a good day, with offshore wind it's is possible to get barrel waves but usualy only in the morning. The paddle sometimes is hard and there is some pollution.
Urban atmosphere, there is a big dock on the left side of the beach. If you surf near that, it can be scary. There are some rocks on the left side of the beach but only on the shore.
Good spot when it's on! Specially on the best season. In the summer it is very often to get side-shore which blews it all...well just take the car and go search...
