once at the castle, if the wave is breacking good, you will not have any problems with the locals (very few) just enjoy it.
only one thing, before paddle 40 min. be sure that the wave is working. once in the beach, you´ll see.
sorry for the locals, but this was a real secret spot. good luck!
is not the spot, its spain, its andalucia, the people, and the beaches, and remember thas its very bear moroco :)

To all locals - Hi everybody!I´d like to say to all local people, who are angry about the detection of THEIR SECRET SPOTS that the planet including the water isn´t belongig to a small elitary group of people, and never will be. It´s belonging to all mankind, and ever will be.Hola todos!Queria decir a toda la gente local que están enfadadas sobre el descubrimiento de SUS SECRETOS SITIOS, que el planeta inlcluso el agua no es la sola propiedad de un grupo de gente elista, y nunca será. Es propiedad de toda la gente, y siempre será.
