Playa El Palmar in Andalucia is a quite exposed sandbar break that has quite consistent surf. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. The best wind direction is from the east. Easily blown out by an onshore breeze Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the southwest. The sandbar break offers mainly right hand waves. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Dangerous rips are a hazard of surfing here.
