May and June are excellent times to visit when it is less busy and the surf conditions are very good.  There is a board shop on the boardwalk do beginners can have a go too.  The wide boardwalk is perfect for cycling, rollerblading or just strolling along taking in the superb views over the Pacific or watching some of the best surfers in the world in action.  There are dozens of friendly bars on Main Street, or try a spot of retail therapy at the Bella Terra mall where you’ll find a wide variety of shops, restaurants and a cinema complex.
