Named after the battery of oil platforms in the near distance offshore, this left point is more exposed to swell and wind than Lobitos so offers options when it is smaller. Low tide out at the point can have barrel sections and thick walls with more power and size than in town. Further up the beach can produce some epic spitting kegs, spinning along the reef anchored sand, but it is often too fast for most mortals and the rip currents can be horrendous. Must have S in the swell to work.

Experienced surfers only. Bit of a trek out to the point from El Hueco.
