- Man-made danger (buoys etc..)
Watch out for night fishing lines left in the break at low tide...they can be 100m long with BIG hooks on ...and sewage outlet near Roche break. When the winterswell is pumping it gets very excellent and really crowded. A good advice is to surf at another break, where it is less people and the waves arent that perfect but you definitely get more waves.
Unique spot in Europe, open beach Atlantic surfing with N African weather. If you move up and down the beach there is nearly always something to do...and in winter storms it can get awsome...saw 4m plus in winter '94, when it started to close out horribly... Variable location, break moves up and down beach towards Roche, as characteristics constantly shifting with beach deposits.Winter '94 saw 5m plus waves, and in these conditions awsome offshore break forms on reef near Sancti Petri Castle..looks like a tow in job!!! Well worth a visit generally, sometimes working when El Palmar is quiet!
loads of package tourists in summer, the winter is deserted, mostly locals.
Great place to chill, friendly locals..tons of space...surrounded by more well known day trips to El Palmar Barbate etc...and of course the famous Bongo's Bar In summer for beginners, in winter for experts.
