About La Selva

A mile walk through a private farm leads you to a wide, white and golden sand beach stretched out in the wilderness that has a bunch of hollow A-frames up and down its expanse. When it's bigger from the N/NE, there's a sandy right reef/point that wraps in around the shoreline into a fully schwackable wall. It's reasonably consistent swell-wise, and sorta protected from the tradewinds.
