Description

Sunset Beach is located in Western Cape. It needs SW swell to work well, it is given a couple of times a year.

It is an open spot with a sandy bottom with one of the Big Wave cataloged waves.

A great right-hander wave with powerful take-off, only for experts.

There is usually not much surfer when it works: respect locals, currents, sharks, and seals.
