Travel to Okanda Temple and walk to the beach from there. You will be able to see the beach from the temple. Once you are at the beach, facing the water, the surf point will be to your right 200 meters down the coast. The point is highlighted by a large flat slab rock, with a crevice in the middle that attracts and spews out water, like a blowhole. You will see two rocks in the water, and that is the surf point.
