True facts - i surfed there in 2003,04 and 05. and i had some great waves there.(lefts and rights!!!) the new jetty has destroyed the length of the ride but it offers protection from onshore wind (2 common in summer)It has to be at least 2 m on plage marinela to have 1.5 m waves on la bare. but when it is good it IS VERY VERY VERY crowded-up to 50 or more people, some of them can be unfriendly. it can also happen that they trouble you out of no reason but it is not that common. what you give is what you get back remember!!

Vive La Barre! - What a sin. La Barre was one of the preeminant surf spots in the sixties. Water was clean; perfect waves. Just goes to show you what "progress" can do.
