Faro d trafalgar es una ola k necesita unas condociones d marra especiales como baja subiendo y viento d levante y un swell medio para k funcione,en verano no hay olas como en toda la costa gaditana,no nos enga?emos,salvo algun dia raro,aparte en l aparcamiento hay un señor k vende pulseritas y mierdesillas jipis supuestamente,k t kiere cobrar 4e por la cara x aparcar alli,cuando ese aparcamiento es para clientes del chiringuito las dunas,pero weno,siempre hay listos k se aprovechan dl verano,por ultimo solo decir k no merece la pena ir n verano iwal k digo k si en invierno hay poco mar y viento de levante,faro de trafalgar es la mejor opcion,un saludo y un abrazo al tio del aparcamiento!!,ojala se gaste el dinero
