Lighthouse beachEdit Spot
A cool spot for surfing, I especially enjoyed it during harmattan season.
Here is where me and my pals actually started surfing. It's not a world class wave of course, but I learned much... The hollow drops of lighthouse helped me a lot with my take off techniques.
An awesome beachbreak, the shifting peak delivers good rides. Absolutely amazing is the left wedge close to the rocks.
Best period is Nov-Feb, when the Harmattan (an offshore wind) blows. Remember to take care of the dangerous rips.
From Tarqwa Bay walk for about 5 min on the rocky pier then cross it...there you are!
