La Cabanita in Andalucia is an exposed reef break that only works when conditions are just right. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. Offshore winds are from the north northeast. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the ideal swell direction is from the west southwest. A right hand reef break. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Rarely crowded here. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
