Marbella - Playa del Cable in Andalucia is an exposed beach break that does not work very often. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Works best in offshore winds from the north with some shelter here from west winds. There is too little fetch for groundswells to form and the ideal wave direction is from the east southeast. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Take special care here if it gets very crowded.
