Really? - I live (or own a house) a few beaches east of here (praia das fontainhas, albandeira) and have never seen decente waves here. Is it true? How often does it work in the winter? What about the rest of Praia da M...? It looks pretty good from the top of the cliff, with what seems like reef-rocky bottom all along the beach. What about other beaches in the Caramujeira area? Respect
