About Ginsu

The main attraction for tourists is Labadee Beach, operated by Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, who anchor huge ships in the deepwater bay, while most of the 2,000 passengers have no clue that they’re in Haiti. There is a small fishing village called “Habitation Labadie”, a mix of traditional Haitian dwellings and prosperous hill-perched villas or stay at Cormier Plage and check Ginsu, the main spot on the north coast. These quality rights are not easily accessible from the road and the reef is so shallow and urchin-covered that is is best to paddle out from the next cove round from the break. Ginsu is fast, but very ripable, once past the dry reef section at the start and it can throw out some nice tubes sometimes. Supposedly, there is also a good left near Dragon's Bay.
