About Barbate

An immense wave with the correct conditions. The sandbar is set into place by the seawall creating a classic lefthand rivermouth wave. Needs a solid swell and low tide to produce long, barrelling lefts with heavy currents guarenteed.

Only medium consistency so the protective locals are on it. After heavy rain pollution is cleary visible from several inland waterways and saltmarshes. South of Barbate - parking is restricted.
