Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the west southwest. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Surfable at all stages of the tide. It's sometimes crowded here. Overcrowding can even make surfing hazardous.

Please don't comment anything about our waves....
Go to some other place and comment what you want, but not
here in Cadiz.
Because of people and not surfers like you, our waves are being f**ked up by so called surfers, these outsiders just throw shit on our beaches and don't have any manners.
Thank you.
sampai junmpa lagi bangsat.....
There are no good quality waves in Cadiz. Go to Portugal.
I hear Amado is good...
