Andalucia is a region in Southern Spain. It is a region of contrasts: ancient cities and deserts, amazing beaches along the Costa del Sol and Costa de la Luz.
Andalucia has an area of 87,268 kilometres squared with a population of 8 million people. It spans almost the entire south of Spain and is bordered to the west by Portugal.

The main hub of surfing in Andalucia takes place on the west facing beaches around Cadiz. This area really needs a south westerly swell as it is sheilded from anything from the west and north by Cabo St. Vincent in Portugal. It is also a popular windsurfing loction thanks to the "levante' air flow from the east in winter and the "poniente' air flow from the west in the summer time. The best time to surf around here would be in the winter during which time the water temps are pretty mild and a 3/2 steamer will suffice.
