El Golfo in Lanzarote is an exposed reef break that usually has waves, although summer tends to be mostly flat. The best wind direction is from the southeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the west northwest. A reef breaks right. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
