Easy park in front of the wave.Possibility of enter from the harbore to the line up. Depending on the season you'll find three points close one each one. Maybe in summer you'll find swimmers playing with the waves but not often.
When an east-northeast swell checks the place, a very funny and amazing wave appears on this side of Empuriabrava's harbore.Probably you'll park your car in the same sand and will see two or three locals (cool guys, members of the Costa Brava Surf Club) raping the waves. They will make you to feel like at home. If the ssession is o.k you'll see people watching the surf on the harbore.
I've taken some of my best sesions of ever.I've enjoyed more here than in my tripps to the Northern Spain.Nowdays i like this spot more than bfore thanks to the webcam which shows the wave.
Cool surfing in a cool place.

- I surfed once or twice there, especially one day a perfect meter just in front of the Muga river exit at the seaSometimes in winter there can be big swell, but you have to be there this day... not easy...
