It is a lot bigger than it look, and don't get caught up on the inside on a big swell,you could get stuck under a big ledge.Use common sence and learn and look at the direction of the current before entering the water, or you could have promblems!
very friendly group if, there is a small number of you, but do respect the locals, even though they are not Spanish locals, there are from the likes of Argentina England and france and now some beginners from calpe taking up the sport of surfing. Don't go down there thinking your the best and drop in on them learning or mouthing off or you could have problem. The place is breath taking when going off
In general this place could give you perfect barrels that don't close out on you, which is rare in the Med. Chance to make new friends and surf very blue water due to the depth of the water hiting the reef. Plus in the summer no Swimmers
