Atmosphere

It's Albufeira, lots of turists in the summer, not so many turists in the winter. Nice place to spend your vacations -> no waves in the summer.

Vilamoura - Hi I have the opportunity to stay at Vilamoura, east of Albufeira later this month. Could anybody tell me are there any surf spots ANYWHERE near this?! Even small waves would be fine, I'm a beginner.Thanks

Albufeira - Hey, I´m coming to Albufeira on 22.5. Is there anyone who could rent me a board and maybe give me some lessons in the south coast area. I´ll be there for 1 week.Cheers, Anssi from Finland
