About Widemouth Bay

Widemouth Bay is essentially two stretches of sand that become one long beach as the tide drops out. Black Rock is a large patch of reef on the southern end and Camel Rock is a large patch of reef to the north. Both can produce quality waves, with long lefts and rights. The beach is pretty consistent with good banks and works through the tides. Will be busy when good.
