La Mata in Valencia is a fairly exposed sandbar break that has inconsistent surf with no particular seasonal pattern. The best wind direction is from the west and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Waves more likely to be from local windswells than distant groundswells and the ideal wave angle is from the east northeast. The sandbar break offers mainly left hand waves. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Rarely crowded here. Hazards include lifeguards.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
