Anclote Island Surf Guide

Anclote Island in Gulf Coast, Florida is a fairly exposed sandbar break. Winter is the favoured time of year for surfing here. Offshore winds blow from the west and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Short period wind swells are the rule and the best wave direction is from the southwest. Waves at the sandbar are both lefts and rights. Good surf at all stages of the tide. An uncrowded break, even when it is working.
