The best is "no wind" day with 1.5m. To park the car leave it near a house in the urbanization "Las Redes". Then walk about 2 minutes until arrive at the beach. Can be dangerous leave the car near the beach. Overcoat if you aren´t local.
Normaly this spot is full of beginners in small days. But the problem is when arrive mid or big perfect swells when locals can be very violent (they wait months for these days...) Be careful of the surfers!
A wave for surfers, but in the bigger days is only for bodyboarders. Days with NW or W Swells with "on-shore" wind.

quality - i have lived all my life in el puerto, on those days when the swell is right, this is the place to be, but in recent years it seems that the swells have gotten smaller and smaller or i have gottem bigger n bigger, cadiz in recent years has become so inconsistent, i blame global warming and change to the swell patterns, this never use to happen back in the day. also, el pico just doesnt seem to work any more, too much sand on the reef. if you think kelly had it hard in florida, try el puerto

el pico de rocas de las redes alfonsito arias - i've surfed this spot whole my life , but the best wave isn't the sand bar , at the same place wher you arrive to the las redes beach , look at your rigth, there are several rocks there that you can see with low tide , there,it0s one of the best waves in whole Cádiz , really , if it's big is icredible good , but some times very crowed, i've have been in Indo , it's more or lees like Bingin but lees hollow , but the best wave there for sure,locals are nice, but some times to much people on this wave,
